if easyfax fails couldn't mafia just then request from cheesefax?
There are two issues here. One is a possible bug report that mafia does not recognize a time out or handle it "well". The other is a potential feature request concerning how to handle the situation (besides reporting it).

That said, the documentation suggests that faxbot() is expected to check all possible faxbots before returning false. A quick looks at the code suggests faxbot only tries the first online bot with the monster. I will look at that more closely and change it if I still believe it is only checking one.
