[Bug-wget] Rettry on fatal errors

Is there any way to make wget retry on fatal errors? There are cases where that 
gets necessary.

I live in an area where GSM and EDGE/HSDPA leaves a lot to be desired. Large 
downloads tend to get stuck — they can freeze at 2% and stay that way for days. 
Thus I have to use wget: set timeouts much shorter than default (-T 30 or less) 
and infinite number of retries (-t 0). But sometimes the connection briefly 
breaks 4-5 times in an hour. If that happens, wget stops retrying.

Is there any way to force wget to continue retrying when the link is down, 
there's no server, no DNS, nothing works? Other than launching it from a script.

I am using Wget 1.12 under Ubuntu.
