34 * A SignalEscape signal exception is raised whenever the 'quit' function of an escape block
35 * is invoked. It causes control of the interpreter to return to the invocation of the escape block.
36 * In other words, SignalEscape 'abuses' the Java exception handling mechanism to perform a non-local return.
