Yay, a patch!

That's probably best, it confuses the two max_idle_time subroutines
that used to be in the codebase ;-)

I've just got rid of one in which is now the
persist_client_timeout option in subversion (that defaults to 30
seconds) and is a timeout in seconds for keep-alives to the end user.

The other one is in the default is for sockets to never
time out (0). Is this what you are interested in, or does the new
persist_client_timeout configuration option good enough for you?
