I'm working with some RSS stuff, including the Python RSS validator 
(Ruby & Pilgrim, at http://feeds.archive.org/). One of the things 
used in this validator is the Python TimeoutSocket by 
<timo / alum.mit.edu>, which shims the Python socket to provide a 
timeout for all sockets. Looking around, it doesn't seem that Ruby 
has anything similar (at least not in base). What would it take to 
add this to base?
