Possibly, but changes to signal handlers are pretty global and can
sometimes have surprising side effects.  I'm all in favor of someone
reviewing the patch - any volunteers?  One case to test might be
reading input from a file that contains \! escapes.  More generally,
we need to consider every way that psql can get SIGCHLD and think
about whether this is the right behavior.
