CFFEED not usable due to missing timeout property

I've always used CFFEED in order to read newsfeeds (e.g. display recent blog postings on the homepage); now we had serious problems with non-responding feeds - and as it seems there is no workaround (see posting by Ben Nadel as well). As solution I decided to go back to cfhttp and simple parsing of the XML document.

But CFFeed does have a timeout attribute!
