33 * Signal is the abstract superclass of all AT/2 interpreter Signals.
34 * 
35 * Signals are exceptions which *cannot* be caught at the AmbientTalk base-level.
36 * They cannot even be caught at the meta-level, but are accessible to the implementation only.
37 * 
38 * Signals pervade the AT/2 interpreter, which is why they are declared to be unchecked exceptions,
39 * i.e. they subclass RuntimeException. This signifies that these exceptions should always be
40 * caught by the lowest-level evaluation loops in the runtime, such that they cannot cause the
41 * interpreter to crash unexpectedly.
