This is in for 3.8.

On earlier or unpatched Python versions: application owners have a workaround f they do not mind skipping a clean application shutdown (destructors) on posix platforms:
catch KeyboardInterrupt, reset SIGINT to SIG_DFL, kill(getpid(), SIGINT).  If you somehow need the python destructor cleanup (never guaranteed, so unwise to _depend_ on it) you could do that in a C atexit handler.

On Windows the workaround is easier without altering clean shutdown, catch KeyboardInterrupt and sys.exit(0xC000013A - 2**32).
