Indeed, the Elisp version of sit-for is a mess.

The easiest solution is to add an optional argument `check-timers' to
input-pending-p, so you can preserve the exact same behavior.
In the long run, we should try and clean up sit-for, but you may not
have the courage to dig into this right now.

Not really.

Yes, it should.

The current state of the concurrency branch is not always
representative of what it should ideally look like ;-)
But even if timers are made to belong to a thread, thread-yield should
probably check timers.
