Interesting topic.

How would buffering in RAM help in reality though (just trying to work
through the scenerio in my head):

producer tries to connect to a broker, it fails, so it appends the message
to a in-memory store.  If the broker is down for say 20 minutes and then
comes back online, won't this create problems now when the producer creates
a new message, and it has 20 minutes of backlog, and the broker now is
handling more load (assuming you are sending those in-memory messages using
a different thread)?
