Ok, so... let's see I've understand correctly now:

It is *safe* to configure tcp_keepalive_time to [let's say] 5 minutes, even
there's some SQL tasks that will take 30 minutes to complete (than making
the *server* process unresponsiviness for those 30 min) -- the client
[connection] won't be droped since client still responds to keep alive
probes while waiting fb server response.

Many thanks Dmitry and Cantu!
