Hi,

We've been having something of a debate on the epgsql mailing list
about timeouts for database queries:

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/epgsql/jmwSCybEN3E

I thought that it'd be interesting to hear how other people handle
things like this.

One thing that looks like we need is the ability to specify a timeout,
but, beyond that, I just thought I'd ask a wider group of people what
their thoughts are on timeouts in library code like this.

Thank you,
