No docs to speak of.  As it tries messages, if it fails it puts it back in
the queue, incrementing a counter and recording the next time it should
attempt (based on the conf file).  So if the server is restarted, it will
remember where it was.

I agree.  I was thinking of declaring a special processor name that would
handle failed delivery.  As a default it would call NotifySender, but others
could change this if they wanted.
