For an experiment, I adjusted scatter.h from:

  #define MAX_SCATTER_ELEMENTS    100


  #define MAX_SCATTER_ELEMENTS    1000

Now, from Perl land, I am successfully sending and receiving messages
of well over 1Mb in size. 

Is this a reasonable thing to do, or is there something that I should
be worried about?


p.s. Thanks to bobD for replying to my queuing question. I would very
     much appreciate other advice on Spread message queues.
