Our solution is quite old. At that time, there was definitely no
"max-disconnect-poll" yet.

In addition, "max-disconnect-poll" seems to target a completely different
use case: to control the time between connection attempts.

In our case, a connection was successfully established. However,
the firewall may cut it if it is inactive for a too long period --
in a way not noticed by the endpoints.

Thus, we must prevent the connection from being idle too long --
e.g. with a keepalive mechanism.

I think, Tim wanted to implement such a keep alive mechanism
inside "ClientStorage" (to reliably detect disconnects) but
in ZODB 3.4 it seems not yet available.
