it might already be the case but I still cannot read haskel and don't know how to simulate quickly. But I am following up on a statement from openneuro folks that they observed some exports failing due to 500 errors and thus needing to re-export. Since 500 could be very intermittent, I expect git-annex be resilient to them and sleep-a-little/retry at least for some reasonable amount of time.

If git-annex already does that, please pardon my noise and close this TODO.
