I was kinda thinking the same thing -- you start looking in terms of
messages and semaphores instead of a real queue manager. And instead
of moving messages among queues, you simply pass a token around from
place to place until mailman is done with it...
Doing this in a decent database becomes really interesting (in a fun
way, not in a grind your teeth way)
