in thread do/redo or for(;;): what's Kosher?

The one time I've used redo is when I've wanted to do just that -- redo something that I was only expecting to have to do once, but that messed up. Connecting to UPS's shipping services, some of the possible errors returned are 'transient' and can be fixed by simply resending the quote request. So i have something along the lines of:
"redo SUBMIT_REQUEST if $transient_error"
