May be use a more general solution?

    with run_with_timeout(timeout=100, timer=collisions_count):
        mapping = insert_untrusted_data(source)
except TimeoutError:
    return 'no thank you'

(You can can use different measurement for timeout: user time, real time, ticks 
count, collisions count, or even a user defined timer).
