I also don't think that password dialogs should time out at all, and AFAICS, 
this is a good example.

Now that I (think I) understood the value of coroutines, I begin to see more 
and more places where they would make perfect sense - for example this 
protocol chit-chat would be greatly simplified.

What a pity that they're hard (if possible at all?) to implement in C++..

Just my 2 cents,
