Is there a way to have a longer timeout for milter when called from reprocess?

On ingress MUAs (like Webmail), we are thinking we need to have a shorter timeout for the milter callout so that if it fails, it will use a longer timeout when it is retried on the reprocess channel.

Eventually we will have milter servers co-located with all ingress systems. But currently, we have milter servers in Location A and Location B but ingress systems in Location A, B, C, D, and E.

We are already seeing much longer average times for the Location C systems talking to the Location A milters, than Location A systems talking to the same milters (no surprise since it is local). When we start doing this on Webmail in Location D and E, we expect problems with Webmail timing out and/or users getting impatient.

A longer timeout when it is retried via reprocess seems like an easy workaround (until we get milter servers in each of the locations).
