Lost track of this, but it keeps biting me.

Somehow, the 60 second timeout seems completely arbitrary anyway.  Maybe we 
should remove it altogether.  We could add an option as described above, but 
then the packager who creates the init script or whoever creates the initial 
configuration will have to make an equally arbitrary choice.  And most likely 
you will not notice that your configuration is insufficient until you are 
really in a bind.

What should we do?
