  Maybe.  I've had bad experiences with that.  It sometimes doesn't make
a difference.

  In any case, I've pushed support for "idle_timeout" and "lifetime" to
git "master".  The incoming "listen" sections and "client" sections now
support that for TCP sockets.

  The default is idle_timeout of 30.  If it doesn't receive packets for
30s, there's no reason to keep the TCP connection open.
