[Python-Dev] Removing PID check from signal handler


The signal handler (that receives signals from the OS) in Python starts 
with a check

     if (getpid() == main_pid)

Looking at the comments, the intent was to do a check for the main 
*thread* but this is checking the *process* id. So this condition is 
basically always true. Therefore, I suggest to remove it in 
https://bugs.python.org/issue36601

If you have any objections or comments, I suggest to post them to that bpo.
