 I don't. It was just "there". Just wondering would it break stuff. 

 Assuming that "root" is the owner of all the queues I have at the moment,
how do I change the queue owner ? I would like a queue for each section,
and the queue would be owned by a developer who would be responsible for
making sure that things posted to the queue are assigned to developers.

 Good. That's pretty much what I'd hoped I could do.

 Yeah. My brain has just worked out what they mean, thanks!
