Sorry, I guess I was confused by some of the discussion, and then I
didn't really see the sort of distributed architecture I expected on
the wiki.  Like, how or whether a single queue will scale or how the
system is highly available, how ordered delivery is reconciled with
those two, etc.

Maybe this is all worked out offline, or it's TBD and the current spec
is more of an ideal.  But it seems like people want to start banging
out code before any of that's on paper.
