I actually just wrote a modification to Queue that is O(1).  There's
no change to the interface, so it doesn't require adding a new data

I have the code here:

The only changes are near the bottom of the file, beginning with the
_init() function.  My implementation uses Python lists, but it uses
them in a smarter way than the existing Queue implementation.

I'll submit a patch to SourceForge in a day or two.
