TERM vs QUIT

Hi list,

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIGTERM, SIGTERM should be
used for graceful termination.

According to http://www.cons.org/cracauer/sigint.html, SIGQUIT should
be used for immediate termination.

Is there any reason Unicorn seems to flip these two and use TERM for
immediate termination and QUIT for graceful termination?

We're running into a situation where some our daemons respond to the
same signals in different ways and it'd be great if they were
consistent.

Thanks!
