We, as in the core project, are not shipping it.  I'm also unclear
on why you want to exclude "fix the RPM packaging" as a reasonable
solution.  It seems likely that some change in that packaging would
be necessary anyway, as it wouldn't know today about any signaling
method we might choose to adopt.

Having said that, I'm not averse to providing a solution if it's robust,
not too invasive and doesn't break other use-cases.  So far we've not
seen a patch that meets those conditions.
