IIRC, it is not possible to specify how long the keepalive interval
should be, using the socket interface.  Do you suggest we add a new
interface not present in other Unix implementations, or that we make
SO_KEEPALIVE always have a one-week timeout, surprising the other
applications that expect it to be faster?

Both of these seem remarkably unappealing to me.
