The other advantage of timeout is early failure - earlier than the uber 10 min timeout that seems to exist in the build files. Usually the test-writer has a general idea of how long the test is supposed to run and if that doesn't happen, we can fail early. Clearly, this involves choosing a reasonable timeout so that the test can pass on local machines, different OSes and/or in VMs.
