I know that returning an empty list changes the semantics: I just
think that's better - or not as bad - than the current possibility of
having any single piece of code possibly die upon EINTR.

If you want to implement retry with timeout re-computation, I'm not
the one to who must be convinced :-)

(BTW, if we go this way, then time.sleep() should probably also be
fixed to retry upon EINTR).
