That feature is not built in to Spread. How tight a timeout on messages
were you looking for? One second? One minute?

An interesting problem that occurs with this type of feature is that it is
not clear in a distributed system who's clock represents 'real' time. If
one clock is slow and so the message is marked as being sent an hour ago,
should it be discarded immediately upon reaching another machine?
