Does Transient Fault Handling Application Block support WCF, OData, or any custom protocols?

Hi, recently I came accross Transient Fault Handling Application Block, which seems to be very useful in Windows Azure. I wonder if it supports other scenarios that require retry logic, such as WCF, OData, SharePoint CSOM, and so on. If so, are there any documents, tutorials, and samples?

I've built some simple custom retry logics in my current solution, but I don't have time to thoroughly test them, and I'm afraid occationally they may not work. If the Transient Fault Handling Application Block can support the scenarios I need, then it will be great.

The other scenarios that you list are not supported out of the box. It would be possible to extend the block to create custom detection and retry logic. See Extending and Modifying the Transient Fault Handling Application Block for some information.
