    Description

      I believe it would be useful to have an Exponential Back-off algorithm implementation, as an HttpRequestRetryHandler or under a new interface, named HttpRequestRetryPolicy.

      The implementation could provide both synchronous (similar to the existing retry mechanism) and asynchronous retries, using a provided ExecutorService/ScheduledExecutorService.

      Any feedback would be much appreciated. If you agree with the value of such a feature, I could proceed to the implementation.
