It doesn't have to open a new channel but it is fine if you do so (opening
a channel is a network roundtrip with a tiny payload).

Your thinking is basically correct. You can combine Ruby's Timeout and
while !(r = queue.get)
to get a response back in under N milliseconds.

This won't be a particularly efficient combination because Timeout starts a
new thread for every Timeout.timeout
call but there are no other straightforward options with Rails/Sinatra and

I'm not sure I understand the "optional data" part. Could you elaborate?
