It *could* certainly be made an option. It just seems like an option not even
0.1% of users would know about or even care about to modify even if they learn
it exists. I would be against such a option for that reason.

I would rather we focued on what exactly the problem and use case you have
with the existing algoritm is that makes you not able to just perhaps extend
the timeout a little?
