After reading the next page of the documentation, I realized that
"add_signal_handler() and remove_signal_handler() are not supported"
on Windows. Moreover, dev3.5 version of the docs are also saying that
they are not supported, so I think they are not planning to supports
those features on Windows anytime soon.

In that case, should I make a bug report on docs that it should be
mentioned on example that this feature is not supported on Windows.

As for the feature request, I think there is a good reason that they
didn't include it already. I will try to look into it, before making a
feature request.
