Sounds ok to me.

There is infrastructure in _multiprocessing to handle Ctrl-C. Look for
"sigint_event" in Modules/_multiprocessing/*. This could be the topic of
a separate issue and patch.

Could you make the tests part of Lib/test/

Also, what is the rationale for the following change:

-            elif timeout == 0.0:
+            elif timeout == 0.0 and nleft != 0:
                 return False
