Summary: No way to change socket timeout on opened URI

Initial Comment:
open-uri is very handy, but as far as I can tell I can't change the read timeout
on the underlying socket.  I end up having to hack a workaround into Net::HTTP
to allow me to set a timeout on its instances before opening the URI.
