[Twisted-Python] Addition to IProcess API

We talked about this on #twisted for a while, I 
just wanted to run this past the mailing list to 
make sure no one has any objections.  I propose a 
new method be added to the IProcess API.  The 
method is signalProcess, and will be used to send 
signals to process's run in the reactor.  The 
method would look something like this:

def signalProcess(self, signalID):
    Send a signal to the process.  signalID can 

    * one of "HUP", "KILL", "STOP", or "INT".  
These will be implemented in a
    cross-platform manner, and so should be used 
if possible.
    * an integer, where it represents a POSIX 
signal ID.

The strings (or something like that) must be used 
because other than SIGINT, the windows signal 
module doesn't define the constants.

Any objections?
