 From what I understand, keepAliveTimeout is supposed to be the timeout 
when doing HTTP keepalive (= keepalive between requests) while the other 
one is supposed to be the timeout while processing requests (= time 
spent blocking on a read when processing a PUT or POST). Since there's 
already the disableUploadTimeout flag (which inflates the timeout while 
requests are being processed), I could not find any actual benefit with 
this change.
