All operations that are potentially lengthy must have a timeout. Methods that do not take explicit timeouts, must delegate to methods that do with default timeouts or must not do any work that blocks. Timeouts are the total limit for high-level operations for which they are to complete, so any retries must be limited to the time not already accessed by earlier tries.
