[revServer] process timeout issue

I agree there should be no such limit in any server-side engine, and 
would be willing to bet this was put into RevServer to protect the 
servers at on-rev.com and not intended for inclusion in the public 
release for use on other hosts.

That said, 30 seconds is a LONG time on a server.  In Internet time, 
it's close to "forever".  Add normal network latency and browser 
rendering time to that and you've got some serious user expectation issues.

What server-side process could need that much time, and how many users 
will wait for it?
