I orphaned the timeoutd package on Dec 18 2001.

The package description is:
 timeoutd enforces the time restrictions specified in /etc/timeouts.
 When invoked in daemon mode (without any parameters) timeoutd
 backgrounds itself, then scans /var/run/utmp every minute and
 checks /etc/timeouts for an entry which matches that user, based on:
 - The current day and time"
 - The tty that the user is currently logged in on"
 - The user's login ID"
 - Any primary or secondary groups the user is in"
