Sounds Good, But the problem is, I have to either change all the
terminology in WHUPS or educate my colleagues  to interpret Queues as
Types and Types as Queues. However it's not an urgent issue now, so
the current setup will do good.
IMHO, it will be nice to give provision to create sub-queues and
provide a configuration which will determine whether to use the
sub-queue feature will be good. So if people don't want the sub-queue
feature can avoid it.
