How do the ruby (irb) and python interactive interpreters handle this?
Both python's "while 1:" and ruby's "while(1)" can be safely interrupted
with ctrl-c with the interpreter still running. Would it be necessary to
implement the measures you suggest above in order to implement something
like this for Pd or dd - ctrl-c stops message processing?
