NCSA timeout for send is (or was) reset after every successful send, so
Timeout there defines a maximum time which a block of output can take
to be sent.

With Apache (AFAIK), the Timeout is a "you have N seconds to send the lot"
value. So even if the transmission is slow but steady, the clock is always
counting down to zero.

The NCSA/Apache 0.6 approach is better IMO.
