In situations when the client fails with certain error codes,
it should be able to retry the request. Ideally, it would
retry the request to a different host so that in the event that
an instance malfunctioned or was removed, the request wasn't
consistently failing.

The guava retrying looks pretty straightforward. Some things to keep in mind:

  • the HttpClient generally also has its own retries built in as well. We should make sure to keep that in mind when configuring how many times/how often to retry.
  • getHost is currently a random selection. To make this particular case more useful, we could probably update it to exclude a host that has already been tried in the case that a previous host has failed.
  • retry attempts and strategy should be configurable. We can put the methods to set them and add defaults in the SingularityClientProvider class

In particular, make retry more configurable by allowing the user to set
the number of attempts and the strategy to determine whether a response
should be retried. Also explicitly disabled retries on the request, so
that it would be entirely handled within the Guava retryer. The reason
that retries within the HttpClient can't be re-used is that doing so
would just retry the given HttpRequest, and this needs to be able to
alter the HttpRequest between attempts. Also is a little more careful
about retrying to different hosts on requests.

Overall this looks good to me. Not sure of the best way to test it out, but we can merge it to hs_staging branches for some internal services to try

I was doing something that looked like
```
url = hostToUrl(host)
actualUrl = hostToUrl(url)
```
which was very obviously wrong. This fixes it so that
it only builds the URL once, which is the correct
write way to do this.
