The goal is to get rid of the service thread; the service thread was
just there as a placeholder.  Once it's gone, signals are appropriate.
The realtime signal is just there as a placeholder until we figure out
how to squeze this down into SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2.

Thomas is now experimenting with using APCs instead of a service thread.
