Add a new SignalHandled decorator

This decorator can be used to call a function holding with protection
from a given signal. The function should accept a dict of
utils.SignalHandler, indexed by signal number, and make use of it.

"""Signal Handled decoration.
This special decorator installs a signal handler and then calls the target
function. The function must accept a 'signal_handlers' keyword argument,
which will contain a dict indexed by signal number, with SignalHandler
objects as values.
The decorator can be safely stacked with iself, to handle multiple signals
with different handlers.
