@asvetlov The idea of the new flag is to disable any subsequent waiting for futures after ThreadPoolExecutor.shutdown(wait=False) returns.

Currently the additional waiting is implemented using "atexit", so I assumed it referred to process exit. (The documentation at doesn't seem to specify precisely when the callbacks are executed.) But looking at the implementation of atexit, it seems that the atexit callbacks are actually called from Py_FinalizeEx.

I think wait_at_exit is descriptive because in most cases the process exit and interpreter shutdown will correlate, but I can still update the docs to make it clearer what "exit" refers to. We should just avoid the word "shutdown" in the flag name to avoid confusion with executor shutdown.
