This is not spam about sleep aids :)

Q: Is there a 'standard' way to sleep for a specified number of BIOS ticks
(or seconds) in a com32 program?

I grepped through the com32 library source and didn't find anything for
'sleep' or 'tick'.

If not, you may want to consider adding:
  void syslinux_sleep(int seconds);
  void syslinux_sleep_bios_ticks(int ticks);

or something like that.
