I don't think there's a problem with a `syntax conflict' as long as any
builtin sleep accepts a superset of the POSIX options for sleep(1).

The sleep in GNU coreutils accepts suffixes indicating minutes, hours
and days (e.g.  sleep 1.5m  or  sleep 1m 30s  for 90 seconds). I didn't
see support for those in konsolebox's patch, so while that's not
conflicting syntax per se, the lack of that option might trip someone.
