Indeed, thanks.

In any case, we have 2 problems with the current code:
- We have two completely different implementations: sit-for ELisp and
  sit_for in C.
- The ELisp version uses read-event and then tries to unread the event,
  which is frought with too many perils.

I don't really care whether sit-for is implemented in ELisp or C, but we
should only have one implementation (it's hard enough to get it to work
once).  And the implementation shouldn't read+unread.
