uses the same example of alarm(timeout)/code/alarm(0) that you
mentioned. That same example is also shown in the DBI pod, where it is
recommended not to use it. :) Instead it points at Sys::SigAction, which
is also (I see from cpan) used by DBIx::HA.
So it seems like that alarm() use is not so much an issue for mod_perl,
but moreso for DBI.
I've started on an Alarm plugin. Will post code when I've tested thoroughly.
