no, waitfor doesnt do what you want

It spins, evaluating a test for three minutes, but does not kill a test 
that hasnt timed out in three minutes.

No obvious solution springs to mind; the java net apis are pretty bad 
and handling timeouts, and that results in a bad experience for code 
that uses it, including <http> and <get>
