Provide HTTPConduit policy to control the number of transparent resends supported per target
URI

                 Key: CXF-432
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-432
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: Transports
            Reporter: Eoghan Glynn
         Assigned To: Eoghan Glynn


Provide HTTPConduit policy to control the number of transparent resends (on 401/30x) supported.
Note that this threshold applies to each target URI, as opposed to each HTTPConduit (as a
fresh HTTPConduit instance is currently used for each request).

The default value for this policy should be zero, but may be inferred to be 1 if an AuthorizationPolicy
is configured for this targetURI (presumably if the user went to the trouble of configuring
this, then a 401 is likely). If the user expects maybe a 30x redirect followed by a 401 challegne,
then they could explicitly configure the threshold to 2. A value of -1 would indicate unlimited
resends.

The motivation for limiting the number of transparent resends is to avoid incurring the cost
of buffering up the message content for every outgoing request, when in more practical scenarios
only a small number of resends (say 0 or 1) would actually be required.
