Add network timeouts and retries
All network operations can time out now. API requests are retried up to three times (default). Replaces setting max_player_errors with max_retries, which is used for player and API. Adds timeout setting. Partially reverts 436a1d4012553a2f33d0e3a5180b3b5ae0378bdd and fixes (at least) issue #657. Thanks to @exarkun for testing.
