      Description

      In current code. if Swift driver meets a HTTP 5xx, it will throw exception and stop. As a driver, it will be more sophisticate if it can retry a configurable times before report failure. There are two reasons that I can image:

      1. if the server is really busy, it is possible that the server will drop some requests to avoid DDoS attack.

      2. If server accidentally unavailable for a short period of time and come back again, we may not need to fail the whole driver. Just record the exception and retry may be more flexible.
