 Sorry, I wasn't clear enough.  In the HEAD version of queue.h, near
 lines 58-63 I can read (even now, through the Web interface of the CVS
 # 1.11      mycroft    58:  * A simple queue is headed by a pair of pointers, one the head of the
 #                      59:  * list and the other to the tail of the list. The elements are singly
 #                      60:  * linked to save space, so only elements can only be removed from the
 # 1.18      tv         61:  * head of the list. New elements can be added to the list after
 # 1.11      mycroft    62:  * an existing element, at the head of the list, or at the end of the
 # 1.16      nathanw    63:  * list. A simple queue may only be traversed in the forward direction.
 There are two "only" instances in line 60.  The first one can go IMHO.
