If I recall right, the authors of IO Data also had ideas about  
long-running commands - is this the kind of thing you mean? (As in,  
commands which take a sufficiently long time to execute that clients  
might go offline, come back later, and check on progress). At least,  
I vaguely recall this subject coming up before - in any case, a  
structure for doing that would be worthwhile if there's support for  

If you're saying that you want command requests to be queued offline,  
then yes, as Pedro says, you want queueing.
