A month after I watched that talk, I used that same philosophy in building a s3 cache daemon - it did no retries itself, instead clients of it had to handle retry - and doing it that way was awesome, as you can then restart the cache daemon at will and know things won't break. (I was writing the client side too so I could add the retry there easily).
