Sorry, no. Just the name of the signal you proposed shows it's a bad idea. 
Signals are always named after verbs in the past tense, indicating something 
that happened. A process that wasn't running and still isn't running does not 
indicate something that happened. You're proposing a signal to show that 
nothing happened, which is not something we want for signals.

At best, we that signal would be "failedToStart", but that's just the 
errorOccurred signal we already have.
