Here's a possible reason for wanting checks in the producers:
If your producer happens to take a long time per iteration,
and the consumer only checks every 65k iterations, it might be
a while before a Ctrl-C takes effect.

If the producer is checking, it is likely to have a better
idea of what an appropriate checking interval might be.
