}  I think we should just drop the "read timeout" option.

     It's not a "read timeout".  The comment is wrong.  The option is a
general option that sets a bunch of timeouts.  To set a specific
timeout, you need '-O Timeout.<whatever>'.  In particular, '-or...'
sets mail, rcpt, datainit, datablock, datafinal, command, ident,
fileopen, control, hoststatus, resolver.retrans,
resolver.retrans.first, resolver,retrans.normal, resolver.retry,
resolver,retry.first, and resolver.retry.normal.  The commnet indicates
that the idea is to not timeout.  That obviously isn't happening.  I
would be okay with simply eliminating it and letting the configured
timeouts apply.
