Looks like a fun project Eric. I only got caught up on the ML this weekend and I'm behind again already. 

Some questions that I jotted down from the previous discussions were:

1. Will broadcast queues be supported? 

2. What are the guarantees of idempotence in the event of retries/errors/etc? (not applicable to broadcast obviously).

3. Could there be support for WAN clusters? i.e. only forward certain queues to remote locations to keep chatter down?

4. Are all operations assumed to be one-way, or is it assumed that return values are part of each call. i.e. do I have to set up other queues for return values as callbacks or is that part of the framework? Is it optional?
