[Bug-wget] Extra "wait" functionality...

I propose that an option be added to wget which allows a wait time which is
a multiple of the last page download time.  This is great for making sure
web-servers aren't clobbered at busy times, and also means they can be
accessed faster at quiet times.

So for example:
wget --load-time-wait 10 http://www.gnu.org

This would leave a gap between downloads of 10 x the last "page download

This also gets around the --random-wait requirement (although that should
still stay for purposes of flexibility).

I didn't see this in the help if it already exists, so apologies if it does
but I certainly couldn't find it.
