FWIW that method gets my vote - calling SleepEx(0) in some critical 
places; I believe that will yield the CPU but not wait any time (so if
nothing else wants the CPU and there aren't any procedures that need
calling then it amounts to a no-op).   

Using a driver to do this is killing an ant with a hammer, no matter
that we find the ant somewhat irritating.. :)
