"Be aware that programs which use signal.signal() to register a handler for SIGABRT will behave differently."

I don't understand this sentence. I think that this sentence should be removed, and another should maybe be added. E.g. "os.abort() doesn't call the Python signal handler installed by signal.signal()."
