it might help to realize that signals are nothing more (or less) than a
way to execute a list of closures (a closure being a function and its
arguments). there is no magic going on when a signal is "emitted": all
that is happening is that a list of closures gets executed (either
partially or completely depending on the signal itself and/or on the
return values from the closures).

for your purposes, that may be a good way to view it.
