Bug Description

When launchpad exports translations to a branch, it can detect transient errors such as concurrent updates to the branch by users. These transient errors cause an OOPS, which is too strong. We could change it to emit a warning, but this is too weak; it would make it difficult to detect when transient error types were actually permanent.

One option would be to convert translations exports to use jobs, which, when lp:~abentley/launchpad/retry-job lands, will support a limited number of retries before oopsing.
