Meh.  Where would you cut it off?  AD 10000000000?  A few zeroes either
way doesn't really make much difference.

If it didn't respond to SIGINT, that would be an issue, but otherwise
this doesn't seem much more exciting than any other way to create a
query that will run longer than you want to wait.
