As a data point confirming that: we tried backporting the much nicer non-polling condition implementation (https://github.com/python/cpython/commit/15801a1d52c25fa2a19d649ea2671080f138fca1.patch) to our Python 2.7 interpreter at work but ran into actual code that failed as a result of the interruption behavior changing.

While it is a nice goal, it is a non-trivial change.  Not something we could ever do within a stable release (2.7).
