Just out of curiosity, why does varnish has a send_timeout in the first
As long as data is going over the wire, a connection shouldn't get closed.

I can understand a first_byte_timeout and an in_between_bytes_timeout.
But a pure send_timeout doesn't make sense to me.

Or am I understanding the use of send_timeout wrong?
