Thanks.  What I wanted was a sanity check.

We don't run PHP as CGI.  I've been working with various *NIX since 1988 
and did think to review the ulimit page before I posted because I considered
trying it apache itself (briefly).  Ulimit is fine if you have a process 
chewing CPU or grabbing memory.  Fortunately or not, that isn't the case here.  
The timeout I need is on wall clock time, not CPU cycles.  AFAICT from the
man page ulimit doesn't have that option.
