I think we've started to venture into system-level territory that the standard 
library itself shouldn't have to account for. If TCP on systems are configured 
by default to allow for infinite timeouts, then it should likely be an issue 
for those distros. I don't think accounting for such things should be the 
responsibility of the standard library. The socket module behaves appropriately 
in handing off timeouts to be managed by the system level if left undefined. I 
think that any further discussion around timeouts should be taken up on distro 
mailing lists, or even perhaps python-list as it's not directly relevant to 
this issue.

As for this specific issue, unless someone beats me to it, I'll get a patch 
together introducing the session_factory as soon as I can.
