[New-bugs-announce] [issue28168] Use _winapi.WaitForMultipleObjects in Popen.wait()

New submission from Eryk Sun:

On Unix, waiting on an instance of subprocess.Popen in the main thread is interruptible by Ctrl+C. On Windows, it currently calls _winapi.WaitForSingleObject, which isn't interruptible. It should instead call _winapi.WaitForMultipleObjects, which automatically adds the SIGINT event object from _PyOS_SigintEvent() when called from the main thread.
