By "pluggable queue" I mean that the implementation for actually storing
messages before forwarding them can be varied. Currently there's just
the one implementation baked into the system.

By "distributed queue" I mean that one of the (pluggable) options for
storing and transacting messages could be to replicate the queue across
more than a single node -- perhaps using a mnesia table, perhaps using a
SQL data base, perhaps using something else.
