Terry J. Reedy added the comment:
The request is to check 'occasionally'. To me this means perhaps once a
second, which is to say, ^c should generally interrupt within a second, and on
average with half a second. The following takes just under a second: "sum(i
for i in range(10000000))" whereas "for i in range(10000000): pass" takes a
fourth of that.
