[Bro-Dev] Queueing in Broker?

One more Broker idea: I'm thinking we should add a queuing mechanism
to Broker that buffers outgoing messages for a while when a peer goes
down. Once it comes back up, we'd pass them on. That way an endpoint
could restart for example without us loosing data.

I'm not immediately sure how/where we'd integrate that. For outgoing
messages, we could add it to the transparent reconnect. However, for
incoming connections, where the local endpoint doesn't have a notion
of "that peer should be coming back", it might not be as straight
