[Nagiosplug-devel] Timeouts w/o alarm

I would like to add timeout-management to a plugin, which uses the
VMware-VIperl-Module. as mentioned in the coding-guidelines, these
plugins reset the alarm-timer.
"Use of the alarm is recommended noting that some Perl modules (eg
LWP) manage timers, so that an alarm set by a plugin using such a
module is overwritten by the module. (workarounds are cunning (TM) or
using the module timer) Plugins may import a default time out
($TIMEOUT) from utils.pm."
About the mentioned "module timer": I don't know, what is meant with
it and can't find something similar on CPAN. Any idea or other solution?
