OK, but that diagram doesn't really cover the detail you'd need to base
such a decision on; there's the ssh server between port 2222 and the
obmc-console-client program.

[obmc-console-client is just a *really* simple bridge between stdio and
a unix domain socket. It doesn't own the network socket, nor do any
authentication or authorisation]

We can definitely do an optional timeout in obmc-console-client, but I
want to make sure that's really what you want first.
