Well, what's to stop me from using the same database table for high 
priority and low priority, but having the high priority background process 
continuously loop to check for new items in the queue?

Even if I have the webs send out high priority directly, like you said, 
that could cause some damage.

Perhaps I could create a centralized relay server that the webs use for 
high priority, and have the webs send out high priority mail.  But at that 
point, I unfortunately have to duplicate the high priority mail code =(
