That will, of course, work; but it has as side effect that improperly terminated
connections (application crash, ...) will stay around for that time, too.
It is better to have your connection (-pooling) code be aware of connection timeouts, and
have it transparantly reconnect. If I recall correctly, the client library has a ping()
function or something similar.
