I've spoken to several other people today who also think option 2 is a 
better choice, and I don't have any strong objections. It's also 
slightly easier to implement than option 3.

I'll write a test program that will time the execute and fetch 
operations on certain long-running queries, run with and without a 
specific query timeout set. Based on these timings, it should be 
possible to analyze the cancellation strategy (if any) used by a certain
