timelimit.netpipes - limit execution time of foreground tasks netpipes 4.2
timelimit.netpipes [ -v ] [ -nokill ] time command args
timelimit.netpipes is used to limit the amount of foreground wallclock time a process consumes. Once the time limit expires, timelimit.netpipes will kill the process, unless -nokill had been specified. -v adds some diagnostic messages.
remote$ timelimit.netpipes 5m faucet 3000 --out cat time-sensitive-info

Francis Liu <email@example.com> suggested that I modify timelimit so that it doesn't SEGV when invoked with no arguments.
