The system can be configured to select a performance/reliability tradeoff
as follows. Please note that clients and workers B<must> be configured to
use the same mode - results are undefined if you try to mix clients and
workers using different modes. If it works, don't rely on it.

=head2 Operational modes

=head3 simple

Jobs are submitted by serialising as JSON and pushing to a Redis list
as a queue.

Workers retrieve jobs from queue, and send the results via pubsub.

Multiple queues can be used for priority handling - the client can route
based on the job data.

=head3 recoverable

As with simple mode, queues are used for communication between the
clients and workers. However, these queues contain only the job ID.

Actual job data is stored in a hash key, and once the worker completes
the result is also stored here.

Job completion will trigger a L<Net::Redis::Async::Commands/publish>
notification, allowing clients to listen for completion.

Multiple queues can be used, as with C<simple> mode.

=head3 reliable

Each worker uses L<Net::Async::Redis::Commands/brpoplpush> to await job IDs
posted to a single queue.

Job details are stored in a hash key, as with the C<recoverable> approach.

When a worker starts on a job, the ID is atomically moved to an in-process queue,
and this is used to track whether workers are still valid.

Only one queue is allowed per worker, due to limitations of the
L<Net::Async::Redis::Commands/brpoplpush> implementation as described in
L<this issue|>.
