Great idea, thanks for pointing it out!

This leads to another question though -- the concurrency setting would
limit simultaneous messages, but is there a way to add a delay between
messages? It wouldn't have to be too long, but 3-5 seconds is kind of
a minimum to make sure the #*$@(( system is done processing the last
message it got.
