Optional SG Timeout for Initial API Connection

There are times when due to issues like a studio's firewall or a misconfigured network setting, connecting to a Shotgun site via the API can sit forever seemingly never connecting for no apparent reason. This feature request is to add a timeout for the Shotgun() method (server_caps) that would allow for an error to be raised upon hitting the timeout. This would at least let users know if a connection simply cannot be established, so further investigations can be performed to determine why the API cannot connect.
