> Akka's ask operations are given a timeout after which they should fail with an {{AskTimeoutException}}.
In some cases, however, it is possible to fail early because one has detected that the remote
host is not reachable or that the actor does not exist on the remote {{ActorSystem}}.
> Usually failing early if one cannot hope for a successful message delivery is a desirable
behaviour since it speeds up recovery. 
> I propose to send Akka's {{Identify}} message with each ask request. The identify message
allows to detect unreachable/non-existing actors and, thus, enables us to fail the ask operation
