  + * NOTE!  It's not "fair" for a hard_timeout to be in scope through calls
  + * across modules.  Your module code really has no idea what other modules may
  + * be present in the server, and they may not take too kindly to having a
  + * longjmp() happen -- it could result in corrupted state.  Heck they may not
  + * even take to kindly to a soft_timeout()... because it can cause EINTR to
  + * happen on pretty much any syscall, and unless all the libraries and modules
  + * in use are known to deal well with EINTR it could cause corruption as well.
  + * But things are likely to do much better with a soft_timeout in scope than a
  + * hard_timeout.
  + * 
  + * A module MAY NOT use a hard_timeout() across * sub_req_lookup_xxx()
  + * functions, or across run_sub_request() functions.  A module SHOULD NOT use a
  + * soft_timeout() in either of these cases, but sometimes there's just no
  + * choice.
  + *
    * kill_timeout() will disarm either variety of timeout.
    *
    * reset_timeout() resets the timeout in progress.
