We're having the same discussion over there at overpass turbo: https://github.com/tyrasd/overpass-turbo/issues/269

Basically, in case of HTTP 429, there were too many queries and the server expects a minimum wait time, which is only visible via `/api/status` call.

So, yes. There are some options for a better error messages. Also, sending two queries at the same time is futile, if the server has a rate limit of 1 (visible in `/api/status` as `Rate limit: 1`). I guess you should sync up with Roland for details. @drolbr
