I checked with @steve.dower and I think abort() will work on MSVC too.  He did have the idea to #define it to `Py_FatalError(“some message”); abort();` but since the former calls the latter we could get warnings that the second abort() isn’t reachable.

I say we start with abort() as the expansion and go from there.  Since it’s a macro it’s easy to redefine if you want to crank up debugging, add a breakpoint, add __LINE__ and __FILE__ or need something special for some particular compiler.
