Yes, I do.  What I meant is that changing the behavior of SIGINT would
introduce negligible incompatibilities compared to the things that were
changed in Python 3.0.

By this, I'm not implying that SIGINT handling must absolutely be
changed NOW.  It can certainly wait until the next major revision of the
language, if one is planned.
