Virtual browser that retries errors

This class works just like LWPUserAgent and is based on it, by being a subclass of it, except that when you use it to get a web page but run into a possibly-temporary error like a DNS lookup timeout, it’ll wait a few seconds and retry a few times.

It also adds some methods for controlling exactly what errors are considered retry-worthy and how many times to wait and for how many seconds, but normally you needn’t bother about these, as the default settings are relatively sane.
