Author Disambiguator edits go through even if maxlag is higher than 5, we should fix the code to ensure it complies with the maxlag policy on Wikimedia wikis by using maxlag=5 (or a lower value) on all editing API queries.

(A) Pintoch's patch has been applied, and (B) I also increased the retry time from 5 seconds to 5 minutes - that still means an edit will fail after 25 minutes if maxlag doesn't drop, with only 5 retries. Is there a consensus to retry for an hour? Or if there's a better standard for handling retries let me know!
