//config:config SLEEP
//config:	bool "sleep (2 kb)"
//config:	default y
//config:	help
//config:	sleep is used to pause for a specified number of seconds.
//config:	It comes in 3 versions:
//config:	- small: takes one integer parameter
//config:	- fancy: takes multiple integer arguments with suffixes:
//config:		sleep 1d 2h 3m 15s
//config:	- fancy with fractional numbers:
//config:		sleep 2.3s 4.5h sleeps for 16202.3 seconds
//config:	Last one is "the most compatible" with coreutils sleep,
//config:	but it adds around 1k of code.
//config:config FEATURE_FANCY_SLEEP
//config:	bool "Enable multiple arguments and s/m/h/d suffixes"
//config:	default y
//config:	depends on SLEEP
//config:	help
//config:	Allow sleep to pause for specified minutes, hours, and days.
