irc server connection initiation (connect()) should have a configurable timeout
There should be a configurable timeout for irc server connections. Currently, to name an example, quasselcore waits 3 minutes until it figures out that an IPv6 address is not reachable.
Version is 0.5_rc1.

Afaik sockets can have a configurable timeout for connect, and the default is insane. I think TCP recommends that insanity, but usually a connection is established in far less than 5 minutes (default TCP timeout, afaik). So it should be possible to reduce the timeout, if one knows that the node operates in a shaky environment.
