Since servers may die without resetting the TCP socket, the Python client has to have some kind of timeout on any given operation. Clients should not hang forever.

In the Java client, we implement a continuious operation timeout, where a certain number of timeouts on a connection will cause the client library to close/reopen the connection to the server.
