I don't think any errors for unqueue make sense as trying to unqueue
an already finished job would be no different from trying to unqueue
an arbitrary number.

Wouldn't it make more sense to unqueue single jobs by URI or by URI
prefix (say I want to cancel indexing the directory I am no longer
monitoring)? Using ints here would allow one buggy process to
accidentally break other processes (say a bug leads to an
uninitialized gint which matches a real queue ID).
