Retry (or resume) when encountering download errors #89

When the git media client receives an unexpected EOF from the server, it will panic and abort the clone/push. It should retry (or resume) the download.

It simply writes to STDERR now. There's no actual retry yet. Right now it just writes the pointer file out to disk if it can't get the media file. But I agree it should retry during the git smudge command.

@technoweenie @rubyist , I'd just like to add it seems like a bug to me - writing the pointer file (which has the exact name as the file itself) can be misleading: i.e. I expect the file to be there and it is - but the content is wrong, now I have to backtrack and understand what messed up (think about a CI server failing a build over this or worse - packaging a release with bad content).
you should not write the pointer if the get failed in my opinion.
