Shouldn't the behaviour for _thread.interrupt_main() be always to interrupt the main thread. 

I would expect that if a child thread uses _thread.interrupt_main() that the main thread be interrupted regardless of how the python script was invoked.

Wouldn't it be more reasonable to make _thread.interrupt_main() always raise a SIGINT? I'm not sure if this is technically considered a bug or not, but it seems that it's not functioning as intended even in Python 3.7
