Minimalist queueing system

MQS (Minimalist Queue Services) is a minimalist queueing system that provides basic methods for offering asynchronous messaging. It lets applications store and retrieve messages to a dedicated queue in the queue services. This avoids direct connections between applications and provides a simple asynchronous communication system. The MQS Daemon provides a simple set of XML-RPC methods for pushing and getting messages in a given queue (you can use the system with any application that can talk XML-RPC). The queue is stored in either a database (e.g. Mysql, Postgresql) or in dedicated file(s) (e.g. QDBM).
