Are you sure you are not confusing it with self.last_time in the 
Rerequester class? I think that is the last time the tracker wsa 
contacted, while 'last' (the one I'm talking about) is initially set to 
None, but then it is copied from the tracker's response (self.last = 
r.get('last')). I'm not sure what purpose it serves though...
