Timeout Status Code

We need a status code for internal use in clients and servers when a
connection times out before the transaction is complete.

I implement this in the CL-HTTP server but there is no standard code for use
when writing access logs in Common Logfile Format.

Presumably a 4xx code should suffice. For now I am using 601. I am using 6xx
code for any non-standard status codes I need.

I'm currently using 5 minutes as a timeout. Any thoughts on better timeout
