After seeing Ping's figures and reading the comments about them,  I
think truth is getting in the way of clarity.  Why not describe the data
structure as a dequeue?  If you do, then you can say that immediate
calls put items at the head of the dequeue and eventual sends put them
at the tail.  I think both the picture and the explanation get simpler.
