using old timeout_socket with UDP

I need to send some messages with UDP, using a version of Python
pre-2.3, but with some control over timeout period.

I've been pointed at
http://www.python.or.kr/pykug/timeoutsocket

I tweaked its line 142 to import SOCK_DGRAM
 from socket import AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, SOCK_DGRAM

Then my main function calls
 timeoutsocket.setDefaultSocketTimeout(5)
and later
 uSock = timeoutsocket.timeoutsocket(timeoutsocket.AF_INET,timeoutsocket.SOCK_DGRAM)

Does that make sense?
