With GNU coreutils sleep (and ksh93's builtin but not that of
bash or mksh) one can add a e-3 suffix to get miliseconds (and
e-6 for us and e-9 for ns)

sleep 1 # s
sleep 1000e-3 # ms
sleep 1000000e-6 # us
sleep 1000000000e-9 # ns

Thank you for the trick (and Berny for the documentation patch). It's new to me, but I guess that's what I get for not investigating the info page's notes.
