When I design a queue system (like MySQL queue table and PHP running
via cron to process jobs) I have a status of scheduled/pending,
processing (currently processing), error, completed, start time, end
time, any message if there is an error, or output in general even with
success (it depends, I suppose)

I would hope it has most of that functionality. It is cool but I would
not feel comfortable sending jobs into a void that might process it so
fast I can't tell but at the same time I can't tell also that it
processed the job and was successful or errored :)
