--- Comment #2 from Merlijn van Deen <valhall...@arctus.nl> ---
OK, so this is slightly more complicated than it seems.

There are two obvious methods:
 - handle the BadToken error in data/api.py. We can just self.sleep() and then
get a new edit token
 - handle the BadToken error in data/page.py, in editpage()

Both options have their problems.

data/api.py:
 good: we can also handle other types of token problems
 bad: edit tokens also serve to detect edit conflicts, and we cannot handle
those at the data/api.py level...

data/page.py:
 good: the logic for getting tokens & handling edit conflicts is already here!
 bad: the retry logic is in the data/api.py layer, and it doesn't cover other
token issues
