athinfo's timeout option should only affect the establishment of a connection

athinfo's new timeout option is great, but it should only timeout while waiting for a connection, not during the entire transaction. I frequently want to use athinfo to query a bunch of machines which may or may not be Athena. If it's hanging trying to connect to a firewalled Windows machine, it should timeout. If it has connected, but the "packages" query is taking longer than usual, it shouldn't timeout.

Feel free to tell me I'm doing it wrong.
