Get out of a infinite elisp loop executed while inhibit-quit is non-nil
(e.g. an infinite loop in a post-command-hook or a timer).
Yes, I can kill the Emacs process, but it's a real pity to have to do that
when there's nothing really wrong with it.
Of course, all those cases are bugs we should fix, but they do happen,
sometimes while writing/testing/debugging code.

Yes, for those C-g is all we need.  But there are others, like `write'.
