New submission from STINNER Victor <victor.stinner at haypocalc.com>:

I would be nice to add a timeout option to regrtest.py to be able to dump the traceback after TIMEOUT seconds and also exit the process. It would help debugging timeout issues (e.g. test_multiprocessing ), but also protect buildbots against evil (long) tests.

Attached patch implements this feature.
