Except that that piece of code is in C land, where unwind-protect is
impossible.  I think that the correct thing would be to offer a
restore-state function that signal handlers could call if they are
going to do something strange like throw to top level.  But I'm not
sure.  (Otherwise I would have implemented it already.)
