The problem is, I don't want to process them all.   I just want to
know how many there are.  I guess I could just dequeue them all, count
how many were dequeued, and enqueue them again.  I really hope that it
doesn't come to that.

I saw that conversation that you and Jamey had about XPending where he
suggested a loop like the one above, but it doesn't help me since I'm
trying to solve a different problem.
