Description (last modified by jdemeyer)

For a while, interrupt_after_delay() was the recommended way to test interrupts. However, since alarms are also handled the same way by Sage, it's better to use alarm().

I have kept interrupt_after_delay() in ecl.pyx since that tests an ECL handler, which apparently doesn't support SIGALRM.
