Yeah, we've talked a bit about this; my initial thoughts about cluster 
healing were in that direction. But suppose we see partition A has a 
queue Q, and partition B does not - does that mean that it didn't exist 
before the partition and was created on partition A, or it did and was 
deleted on partition B? There are ways round that, but it gets messy
