[Rbrainz-users] Limiting Connections to the MusicBrainz Web Service

Hello !

First of all, thanks to everyone who made rbrainz and musicbrainz so cool to
use !

I have a question about rbrainz and the following thing in the musicbrainz
doc :
"All users of the XML web service must ensure that each of their client
applications never make more than ONE web service call per second. Making
more than one call per second drives up the load on the servers and prevents
others from using MusicBrainz. If you impact the server by making more than
one call per second, your IP address may be blocked preventing all further
access to MusicBrainz."

Has rbrainz implemented any nice feature that would wait if a request has
already been made in the previous sec ?
