That is true. However the question remains - is it better to provide a
single Queue class that does everything (including replay) or a
selection of Queue classes with different features? I'm not sure of the
right answer. I am leaning towards the swiss-army-queue because AMQP
does not provide any way to compose features, so separate Queues would
suffer from the "but I want it to do X AND Y" problem and because I'm
guessing the list of things that anyone would want to a queue to do is
bounded and fairly small - but I'm not sure of that last point either
