Hi all,

Would anyone like to contribute an example script using Bio.Entrez
with try/except handling of intermittent network errors like:

 - HTTP Error 500: Internal Server Error
 - HTTP Error 502: Bad Gateway

This could be an example under Doc/examples or directly in the
Entrez chapter in the Tutorial? We can then add an FAQ for dealing
with network errors in this and other online resources.
