It should just pass the timeout parameter to the IMAP4.__init__ method.  
I guess we could also not pass the timeout argument in that case, but it 
would be better if it got up to the parent class.

Yeah, but I'm not really sure exactly what it should do.  I think it 
should be like IMAP4.read but with s/self.sock.recv/self.infd.read/.
