Hi, is there any difference between doing:

  sleep

and:

  Thread.stop

?

In both cases the current thread is in "sleep" state.

Also, why there is no way to stop/pause/sleep a thread different of the current?
I mean something as:

  t1 = Thread.current
  Thread.new { t1.sleep }  <--- This doesn't exist (neither #stop or #pause)


Thanks a lot.
