All these things have been proposed. Some need server work which is
hard to do with so few admins. The back mechanism does kick in after
the first failed upload.

I have however prepared a patch for the first idea, check the go_nogo
script prior to upload. The rules are:

1. Check the go_gono first if you've had any recent failures
2. If go_nogo (soft failure) is <0.10, add 7% to delay and sleep
3. If upload fails (hard failure) double delay and sleep
4. If upload succeeds, halve delay and sleep

The idea being that checking go_nogo is cheap enough that we don't
need to delay so long because we can check it more often.
