For the timeout functionality there is already timeout(1) in the base.
Joerg asked in another mail for something non trivial for a basic process,
something I would do in a high-level scripting language (Perl, Python).
Just to note: FreeBSD upgraded timeout(1) in their svn, it's worth for a
developer with commit rights to cherry-pick their improvements.
Why not to cross-reference pwait(1) and timeout(1)?
