ko1 suggested Mutex#release (new version of Mutex#sleep) for backward compatibility.
What do you think of it?


----------------------------------------
Bug #16608: ConditionVariable#wait should return false when timeout exceeded
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16608#change-84191

----------------------------------------
The following program prints `false` on Ruby 1.8, but `true` on Ruby 1.9 or later.

```
require "monitor"
m = Monitor.new
c = m.new_cond
m.synchronize { p c.wait(0.1) }
```

However, it's not critical because most programs check the condition after wait.
