then how does interrupt_main work? is it implementation-agnostic?

>>> import thread
>>> help(thread.interrupt_main)
Help on built-in function interrupt_main in module thread:


    Raise a KeyboardInterrupt in the main thread.
    A subthread can use this function to interrupt the main thread.

just let me raise arbitrary exceptions (don't limit it to KeyboardInterrupt)
