You don't want to be writing your code in Python then. In Python you *never* get to react immediately to signals. The interpreter sets a flag and calls the python signal handler later. Yes, the call is ASAP, but ASAP is *not* "immediately".
You don't have to get that philosophical.
"Immediately" means, "without delay", "without further I/O".
