Eryk, would the addition go before or after "trip_signal(SIGINT);"

I posted "Issue with _thread.interrupt_main (29926)" on pydev list.  Steven D'Aprano verified delayed response on *nix.

Martin Panter said
"Looking at the implementation, _thread.interrupt_main just calls PyErr_SetInterrupt. It doesn’t appear to send a signal. I played with “strace” and couldn’t see any evidence of a signal. I guess it just sets a flag that will be polled. To actually interrupt the “sleep” call, you might need to use “pthread_kill” or similar (at least on Unix)."
