Is the warehousing tool feasible in your opinion?  Is it the right way to
do it?

It seems to me that an innate weakness of the system is that it would always
get bigger, and that it would be impossible to run a queue with any kind of
turnover for more than n years before having to start over.  Some way to
warehouse the old transactions would be very useful after a long time 
running, or a shorter time with a very busy queue.
