I was in dire need for a shell-callable usleep(). Since usleep is a
plain glibc call, much like sleep(), I thought I just hook it up. After
I failed to code it myself (got stuck in &*->[] C code) someone else
submitted a patch to the mailing list.

in short, I felt really good after adding that patch. Oh, you have been
running it almost since the beginning of coreutils, since the usleep
patch before coreutils was in one of the previous components of that
module, and I'm the last one die slapende honden wakker maakt ;^)
