Let's do it like this:

1. Ask them.  That doesn't cost anything.  They can still offer to
   support timeouts and make that a no-op for implementations which
   don't have them (like Drakam does).  (Also, are you sure it's only
   LispWorks and SBCL?  Have you checked AllegroCL for example?)

2. If they say yes, that's fine and I'll update Drakma to work with
   the latest usocket release.

3. If they say no, let's talk about integrating your patch into

Actually, I hope they say yes.  Several people tried to convince me to
switch Drakma from trivial-sockets to usocket because there's active
development over there...
