Yah. Obviously the feature will start out being rather primitive, but
it should be possible to add functionality incrementally without having
to ripup the stuff already done. I can envision (in the future) a program setting up a SIGCHKPT signal, for example, which would allow the
program to implement its own checkpoint restore function based on a
resource list given to it by the system.

Ah, ok. It could have something like checkpoint+restart functions which both get called during those respective operations as part of any additional initialisation that needs to be done.
