Well - given that the Queue configuration works...we have lots of people
using it... etc... I'm less inclined to change that than to change the
configuration which is broken and no-one uses :-)

I agree that it's a particularly unlovely way of using XML...  however I
would rather fix config more generally and do it once, rather than breaking
it for people twice
