Starting proces(ses) on signals instead of messages

Hello,

started playing with activiti engine and noticed that while there is the possibility to start a process based on a message, but there is not the possibility to start it based on a signal.
I may need to model a situation when more than one process should be started when the same signal is raised by an external system.
I can't model them as subprocesses as those processes are for different "customers" and for the sake of separating each process I can't mix them.
Wanted to know if there's a way this feature could be modeled with the current Activiti status or not, or if such feature is planned in a future version of the engine.

I can't use what's been proposed here (http://forums.activiti.org/content/start-process-instance-using-signal-instead-message) because, as said, I may have more than one process that should be started by the same event while in that scenario I many need different message names as they should be unique across all process definitions.

Thanks.
