            Bug ID: 59678
           Summary: Implement badtoken detection and recovery
           Product: Pywikibot
           Version: core (2.0)
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: General
          Assignee: pywikipedia-b...@lists.wikimedia.org
          Reporter: maar...@mdammers.nl
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

Every once in a while I get a badtoken exception. This is probably because I
have multiple bots running on the same site at the same time (race condition).
* Bot A requests token -> 123
* Bot B requests token -> 123
* Bot A edits with token 123 -> ok
* Bot B edits with token 123 -> poof

We could of course implement very difficult synchronization, but it doesn't
happen very often so it's probably better handle it like a collision in
ethernet.
* Detect the badtoken
* Back off for a random number of seconds
* Get a new token
* Do the edit
Max tries should be respected so the bot can't get into a infinite retry loop.
