/**
 * Provide basic rate limiting functionality via WP Options API.
 *
 * Currently only provides a simple limit by delaying action by X seconds.
 *
 * Example usage:
 *
 * When an action runs, call set_rate_limit, e.g.:
 *
 * WC_Rate_Limiter::set_rate_limit( "{$my_action_name}_{$user_id}", $delay );
 *
 * This sets a timestamp for future timestamp after which action can run again.
 *
 *
 * Then before running the action again, check if the action is allowed to run, e.g.:
 *
 * if ( WC_Rate_Limiter::retried_too_soon( "{$my_action_name}_{$user_id}" ) ) {
 *     add_notice( 'Sorry, too soon!' );
 * }
 *
 * @package WooCommerce\Classes
 * @version 3.9.0
 * @since   3.9.0
