Respect the Expires header
|Cc:||mario||Blocked By:||#3176, #3395|

Description (last modified by mario)
#3176 adds meta data to the content blocker lists. One field in there is the Expires field, that defines how long the client should wait until the list is updated. We should respect this value, so we can be more flexible about adjusting the download interval.
What to change
When updating the list, the client should read the Expires header, if present, and schedule the next update check accordingly. If the Expires header is missing, the client should check for updates in five days.
Please find two example lists attached to this issue.
