For a site I'm running, I'm going to have a few different queues for message sending. For example: high priority email, low priority email, high priority twitter, low priority twitter... etc.
I have set up queues (like "UrgentEmail", "UrgentTwitter") etc. using Drupal's Queue API, but now I need to work on the queue processing (consuming).
I can simply use hook_cron in a module to consume one queue at a time, or all of them, as much as possible, but I'd like to be able to maybe have one queue get hit every couple minutes, while the lower-priority queues would only get it once every half an hour or so...
Is this possible without writing up some of my own cron handlers? I know elysia cron for D6 was good at setting options for module-specific cron, but is there a way I could branch out cron in a single module and run different tasks at different intervals? Or is there another Drupal Way™ to do this?
