the examples of other projects I've seen mentioned are Ant (a command
line user tool) and the Subversion server (A system that intrinsicly deals
with network communication) ... both of these seem like situations where
adding a bit of wait/retry logic doesn't add much overhead to the overall
process -- i doubt either of those projects would be very happy if a low
level API they used (say for example: an XML parsing library) employed
similar wait/retry logic in a manner they couldn't control.

Hence my suggestion about splitting this logic into a new Directory
implementation: let the applications built on top of Lucene decide wether
they want to protect themselves from this or not.
