Do we really want to make the threads do any more than sleep/yield/queue_wait when they are ready to go to sleep?

I suggest we make the scheduler a tad more advanced, rather than make each thread more complex. So the thread code looks the same, but threads are not scheduled until their sleep() or queue_wait() is complete.
