I don't like the suggestion to lower the timeout to select().  Lots of
the rest of the world is pushing towards removing this kind of periodic
polling (generally with the goal of improving power consumption). 
Python should be going this way too (the recent introduction of
signal.set_wakeup_fd suggests that at least some Python developers are
convinced of this).
