I'm just a 1.2 Luddite, so I've never seen AGISIGHUP and I think it's a 
bad idea to protect lazy programmers :)

Program defensively!

Trap the HUP and do what is appropriate for your script -- even if that is 
to ignore it.

If the successful execution of your system depends on a setting, how long 
will it take the next guy to figure out when the setting disappears
