Add a delay between retries when task crashes

See original GitHub issue

Currently, it seems that there is no delay at all between retries when my task raises an exception. Sometimes bugs occur in the tasks logic and they simply raise an exception. I don’t want to lose any of the tasks, so I went trying to set retries=2**16, but it retries right away.

What would be the recommended way of handling this use-case?

Catching all exceptions inside the tasks and sleep doesn’t make a lot of sense to me as it will be wasting time sleeping instead of processing other tasks…
