Contributor in Halt project when I worked in NP6

Halt is a node addon that makes it possible for the user to stop the execution of a V8 instance without kill the current loop.
Timeouts are managed by creating a parallel event loop who's sole objective is to manage the timer. When a program is bottlenecked by the CPU, you may want to kill this event and that is the reason why we throw a nice CPU bound Exception on timeout.
