Right. With the current code you can only deduct what the actual

soTimeout: The time to read the data.
keepAliveTimeout: The time between two requests.

Those things has been elaborated long time ago.
I'm sad that my first patch to the Tomcat get reverted immediately
without any -1. Anyhow, I'll think twice before next commit.
