To clarify how I see this issue more briefly than my other mail:

 - When an app is calling a trusted daemon, I agree there's no reason 
   that the app itself needs to timeout, it could be "infinite"
   (but I still argue for true infinite, not 49 days)
 - I think the bus's reply timeout stuff can be removed as long as 
   there's a limit on number of replies being expected by a single
   client ... I don't remember if we have that already. Since then
   a client can only hose itself, by using up this limit, but not
   the bus.
