I'd suggest continuing to do it the way you are currently. While  
installSignalHandlers may be undocumented, it's not just going to  
disappear overnight. If you use that parameter and
task.LoopingCall(process.reapAllProcesses).start(1.0, now=False)
then I'd say you're on fairly safe ground for the immediate future.

Overall we do a good job of keeping backwards compatibility even for  
APIs that may not be completely official, so it's unlikely to just up  
and disappear.
