Hi Christoph --

Again, adding this kind of precision is a new feature. Not a fix of a bug or regression.

If you want to simulate some work in the context of a TestCase, why not implement something there? Why should the base system support #busyWait at all?

This could be good future work. But as described earlier, there is a real need for busy waiting. :-)

The better solution would be to implement very short duration Delays properly.

Give a man a compliment, he’ll feel good for a day.
Teach a man to fish for compliments and he’ll never feel good enough for the rest of his life.
