Thats a good question. The common answer is "to have a unix
environment", and respectable signal handling is part of this; though
cygwin doesn't make it as good as unix, it tries.
However, that isn't necessarily as good thing, depending on the person
(I'll stick my seriously-pro-unix environment biases out the window
for a bit). Also, it doesn't necessarily translate into being able to
stop under Microsoft OSs, as Stefano notes.
I think it might be possible to do this if one uses R and XEmacs both
compiled under Cygwin, but this is a non-supported conjecture. I hope
to have data and evidence at some point very soon.
