Hi Ethan,
Turns out the module in Pypi lacks what the latest release shipped with ESXi
and obviously what github has. There is apparently a restartable strategy that
I am working with now.

I thought of a decorator implementing the retry idiom but as these are simply
objects not functions that doesn't apply. I'd have to go options 1 or 2. Hopefully
the restartable strategy suffices.
