Increase beacon frequency until there's enough data, then decrease it. #937

PageSpeed beaconing through v1.7 would add beacons to pages at a regular 
interval (5s by default).  High-traffic pages would not get beaconed on most 
page views, and low-traffic pages would tend to get enough instrumentation to 
be able to make optimization decisions.

We can safely beacon even less often (say every 10min) when beacon results are 
stable over time.  We should turn up beacon frequency when conditions change.

(Stumbled on this interval feature and currently use it to cache non-beaconed 
pages in Varnish)

Maybe Min and Max beacon intervals could be config parameters ?

Webmasters could then individually finetune beaconing depending on the nature 
of  content and trafic.
