Longer timeout for feed first fetch
Short, concise description of the idea
When creating a syn feed, the first fetch of the feed will timeout after 5 seconds. This should be increased.

UPDATE: On 1st submission, the moderator replied: Are you sure this is not a bug? Have you reported it to support?
Yes I have. I would consider it a bug, but apparently it is deliberate.
(old text follows)
A 5 second timeout seems rather arbitrary. The feed I am trying to syndicate loads in my web browser in ~20 seconds. This is perfectly acceptable for a human user, but livejournal wants superhuman speed.
- Users have a wider array of feeds available.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
- It's hard to know what the added server load might be.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
- It can't be too hard to change the timeout value...
