Using timeouts when monitoring disk space usage

Currently I'm using monit to alert me when disk space usage reaches 80%.

check device rootfs with path /dev/hda1
        if space usage > 80% then alert
        mode passive

When space usage reaches the alert level, monit keeps reminding me until
I bring it back below 80%.  I'd like it to send one alert, then timeout,
like it can with processes.  Otherwise I keep getting alerts until I can
login to the box and clean up old files, etc.

check process apache with pidfile /var/run/
        start program = "/etc/init.d/apache start"
        stop program = "/etc/init.d/apache stop"
        if 2 restarts within 3 cycles then timeout
        mode active

I've searched the manual and Google'd it, to no avail.  It appears that
timeouts only apply processes.  Is there another way to limit the number
of alerts for disk space usage and the like?
