I like these proposals! Thanks!
I think I prefer the retryIfBefore/retryIfBefore version.

In a private email Simon Peyton-Jones proposed retryBefore / retryAfter.
It's interesting that you think so similarly ;-)
This also convinces me that these are the best names.

I was going to release a cabal package with these functions a week ago,
but life didn't allow me to. Stay tuned ;-)

Best regards

I am searching for a programmer who is good at least in some of
[Haskell, ML, C++, Linux, FreeBSD, math] for work in Warsaw, Poland
