eventlet/gevent timeouts are also a good idea, I'll look into adding
these as well.

One issue with this however is that I hate calling import from inside
a function (partially because I've looked too close at eventlet's
patching code) but unconditionally importing it upfront, in a
try-except block, woud be bad for py.test's startup time.  Would
importing in a function be reasonable in this case?  Or am I missing
another solution?

Thanks for all the feedback everyone!
