Here's the patch I mentioned:

It has a crude but effective technique for handling the hanging issue :-). Alternatively one could use the World's Stupidest Coroutine Runner:

def run(coro):
    except StopIteration:
        raise RuntimeError("yielded")

> I'm also wondering how far we might be able to get by adjusting the pending signal processing such that we always execute at least one line from a function before checking for pending signals

Huh, that's a neat idea. I think it's defeated by 'while True: pass', though :-(. (You have to write it on two lines, but it compiles down to a single instruction that jumps to itself.)
