Interesting; I didn't notice that bit before.  It seems like that does at least try to guarantee that a signal can't interrupt between:

lock.acquire()
try:
    ...

which previously I assumed we couldn't make any guarantees about.  But CPython at least does, or tries to.  It would be good to generalize that.
