I don't think that patch is useful in this case.  This case is not stuck in
some extension module's poll() call.  The signal handler is not Python's
nor is it under my control (so no chance that it would look at some new
pipe), though the rpmlib Python bindings can look at the state bits it
sets.  The Python interpreter is running full-bore when the secret rpmlib
SIGINT state is needed.  I think the patch is for the exact /opposite/ of
my problem.
