In order for a Windows bot to get up and running, it needs to be able to
correctly detect test hangs and timeout accordingly.  

The best solution for this will be to create a separate python module that will
provide an abstraction for platform-specific differences that the test suite
cares about.  Then the test suite can import this module and just call
platform.run_with_timeout(args) or something.
