Description (last modified by erikvold)

It seems to me like we should be using the Retry-After header both server side and in adblockpluscore for filter list downloads, when a retry or redirect is performed.

At the moment we ignore this header and simply prevent a retry for 24hrs.

Also we have some inserted randomness to the expiration in order to spread out server load, but I think this would be better handled with the Retry-After HTTP header so that the server can better control the traffic.
