In addition to all the other good information you've evoked, let me add a
couple thoughts.

1. Data queues implement what are commonly known as stacks and queues in
C-language development contexts. All the hard work of writing those things
has been done for us by IBM (Yay!). A nice implementation of the
object-oriented concept of "Just give me the interface to an object—I don't
need to know the way it works".

2. Data queues can be keyed (binary tree?), as well as LIFO (stack) or FIFO
