I am currently using subprocess to execute a command.  Then I read from
it's stdout...however, this is hanging on a read..waiting for more
bytes.  So what I would like is to timeout...and select.selec() seems
to be what I need.  Except I don't have a socket, i have stdout.

Any suggestions on how to do a timeout like with stdout?
