if it's well publicized in advance of the release, I think this would be an excellent change.

I am considering changing that to send HUP to stop starting new jobs
and TERM to kill running jobs.

This will make it easier to kill GNU Parallel:

$ bash -c 'parallel -j1 sleep ::: 111 222' &
# This would then kill the process group with bash and parallel
$ kill -TERM -$!

It will make it incompatible with previous versions.

What is your opinion?
