  Description     : Fake version of time.sleep() for use in tests

fakesleep is a simple module for tests that use `time.sleep()`. Sleeping in
tests is generally considered bad (as it makes tests run slow). Using
sleep with `time.time()` can lead to spurious failures, as clock
precision / interpeter overhead can cause small differences in reported

The package is a dependency of another forthcoming package (systemfixtures)
and will be maintained as part of the Python Modules team.
