Servo 'Sweep' Program - Can I use MICROS instead of millis for delay?

I have a case where I’d like to have a float for the delay (i.e. delay of 15.5 milliseconds). This does not work in the sketch below. Is there a way to:

A. either make it work with a float
B. switch the time base to somethign finer (i.e. microseconds instead of millis)

#include <Servo.h>

Servo myservo;  // create servo object to control a servo
// twelve servo objects can be created on most boards

int pos = 0;    // variable to store the servo position

void setup() {
  myservo.attach(9);  // attaches the servo on pin 9 to the servo object
}

void loop() {
  for (pos = 0; pos <= 180; pos += 1) { // goes from 0 degrees to 180 degrees
    // in steps of 1 degree
    myservo.write(pos);              // tell servo to go to position in variable 'pos'
    delay(15);                       // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
  }
  for (pos = 180; pos >= 0; pos -= 1) { // goes from 180 degrees to 0 degrees
    myservo.write(pos);              // tell servo to go to position in variable 'pos'
    delay(15);                       // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
  }
}

delayMicroseconds()

Servos work on an update rate of around 50Hz.
