I have few development boxes where nginx is running on foreground (screen 
session). It gets annoying when workers are stopped by SIGWINCH when I just 
mis-click my terminal window. I'd like to replace WINCH with some other signal 
but I don't want to cause any strange side effects - what would be safe 
replacement? I thought about SIGURG but I'm not sure If I don't get some OOB 
marked data. Maybe SIGXFSZ (in line with SIGXCPU already used)?
