The underlying C API function, PyErr_SetInterrupt(), simulates SIGINT without actually sending the signal to the process via kill() or raise(), but the doc string of interrupt_main() doesn't explain this, or at least it didn't used to. bpo-43356 generalized _thread.interrupt_main() to support simulating any available signal, and hopefully the new doc string [1] clarifies the intent.
