	I had an app recently that was doing just that, and I don't see  
what's bad about it.  My log file is already open on a node, another  
node gets emfile or enfile (I was getting both) and sends it back to  
the logging node which tells me that's why a particular request failed.

	I suppose I'm not actually doing a *retry*, but I'm proceeding which  
means I'm going to try to make a new connection pretty much  
immediately afterwards.  My app recovered after both of those errors.
