Doug,

these are good points. The line of reasoning which says that timeouts that
are too long result in poor resource utilization is on good grounds - the
problem I had with an arbitrary maximum is that under some extreme conditions,
no service might be provided at all - the usual effect of timeouts that
are too short.
