I don't think Álvaro meant any of that. I didn't mean to say that you need
to worry
about running out of RAM, although this is by far the most common problem.

Just pointed out at two solutions that solve the most common issues with
extremely large queues.
If you don't run out of RAM and your consumers can keep up even with 1
queue, what issues do you have?
