it does serve a purpose, since every now and again buildbots hang forever due
to a miscompilation turning a finite loop in a compiled program into an
infinite loop, or by an optimizer going into an infinite loop due to a bug in

As for setting timeouts, the builders have a timeout parameter, take a look in

Ciao, Duncan.
