I am using postgresql, and I am doing a bit of math on some of the queries and my dataset is getting bigger, so it's an issue (though I'm working on putting in timescaledb which will partition up my data and make this not suck), but I need it to not deadlock the entire server until I can get that done.

  The issue is that query_timeout was being ignored, due to limitations in the PostgreSQL API.  Terry's patches make it use an async API, which allows us to manually implement the timeout.

  That's only the final one.  You'll need to pull over all of them.

  The v3.0.x branch should be stable.  We're only making minor changes to it at this point.
