Subject: [DISCUSS] KIP-601: Configurable socket connection timeout

Hi Cheng,

1) Thanks for the update,  the KIP now says `*`*, which sounds good.

2) Not sure 10s is a good default because it unnecessarily times out
connections, only to attempt re-connecting to the same broker (except in
the leastLoadedNode case where it would be useful to have a lower timeout).
Couldn't we just use 30s (request timeout) as the default value, retaining
the current behaviour? Or alternatively, only apply the timeout where it
makes sense to have a lower timeout (i.e. a timeout for leastLoadedNode)?
