Looks like a good idea to me - I have a (C++) logging system at work
that pushes some of the I/O bound tasks out to a separate thread for
similar reasons.

To further reduce overhead, would it make sense for the signature of
the QueueListener constructor to be (queue, *handlers)? (Providing the
ability to add and remove handlers post-construction seems
unnecessary, since you can add or remove new listeners to the original
queue to get a similar effect without worrying about synchronisation
of access to the list of handlers)
