No, I have not.  And I doubt anybody else has.

It doesn't appear that way to me. Care to explain how you
arrived at that conclusion?

    $ python
    Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Aug 28 2008, 15:54:48) 
    [GCC 4.1.2 (Gentoo 4.1.2 p1.1)] on linux2
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more
    >>> import time
    >>> time.sleep(0.0125)

The above code has worked as far back as I can recall (which I
think includes Python 1.4).
