Allthough most systems are reliable enough and with no-break systems one
would keep a system up for years. But when something happens you would
lose everything in the queue.

I have been wondering also because I know somebody who delivers very
small computersystems running on flashcards. These (the versions with 3
LAN's) are installed as firewall. But there are also versions with 1 LAN
and those would be perfect for an application level firewall (which I
believe MS is) if one could keep the queue to a minimal (=0) size.
