Hello, I'd like to ask why Sleep() function in unix world uses Select() 
instead of fpNanoSleep()? Is there a particular reason? After a somewhat 
riggid discussion on the channel yesterday I came up testing threading 
using sleep() and nanosleep(). The difference in speed is huge. I'm 
prepared to make a patch for Sleep() to use NanoSleep but I'd like to 
know if there are any reasons again such approach.
