    I guess that because of historical reasons, from back in the day, when there was no generalised concept of threads.

    I don't see a big problem here
    Especially for newcomers
    It's better to import sleep from time module rather than understanding threads and importing it from there

    As of C11, there's actually thrd_sleep as a cross platform sleep function.
