Even though Java's IO model doesn't really support the concept of a
timeout on a read, if the behavior of TDS is observed to use transaction
timeouts that might be necessary to properly emulate the protocol. We
don't currently support transaction timeouts because there is no
generic interface for transactions but we might be able to expose it
in TransactNamedPipeInputStream or somewhere else. If you have a packet
capture that shows timeouts being used in some fashion and for practical
purposes think it's better to emulate that behavior then I'll look at
the issue closer.
