/*
* a smart poller for jquery.
* (by github)
*
* simple example:
*
* $.smartPoller(function(retry) {
* $.getJSON(url, function(data) {
* if (data) {
* doSomething(data)
* } else {
* retry()
* }
* })
* })
*
* The $.smartPoller function accepts a starting
* interval in ms but defaults to 1000:
*
* $.smartPoller(2000, function(retry) {
*
