thanks, just seen and commented on this.
IF we're going to have test timeouts, we need a good recommended default
value for all tests except the extra slow ones.
1. we just use our own JUnit fork that sets up a better default value than
0. I don't know how Ken would react to that.
2. we get maven sure to support a programmable (default) timeout for every
test case. This is probably easier, and would work for all existing tests
Has anyone asked the Maven team about options here?
