Slang is occasionally super-tricky. If you write
self atexit: #sendSignalToPids
which will crash. You must write
self atexit: #sendSignalToPids asSymbol
to get it to generate
(where sendSignalToPids is some function to be called at exit).
If course we should change this but there's backwards-compatibility for
plugin to consider. Does anyone depend on the old behavior? I've been
bitten more than a few times by this. Sigh...
