I'd like to second that request, needing to use the win32 Sleep just kills the portability. My workaround for yielding is -

#if defined _MSC_VER || WIN32
# include <windows.h> // for Sleep
# define MILLI_SECOND_SLEEP(value) (Sleep(value))
# include <unistd.h> // for usleep
# define MILLI_SECOND_SLEEP(value) (usleep(value * 1000))

but that's just a hack, it really should be in the library.
