Normally I advocate very strongly for Python implementation of C accelerated modules, but when the two implementations are not equivalent, having a simpler Python one around does not help anyone (not users, other language implementors etc). True reentrancy is possible but quite hard to achieve. 

So, FWIW, +1 on just having a C implementation.

The dedicated signal thread sounds useful too - it would ease the issues for folk using other parts of the stdlib, and would in principle permit a pure-python RLock to hang around.
