Dumb clients are dumb, intelligent networks are dumber

Best film ever!
So you need process A to talk to process B, but you want asynchronicity, reliability, decoupling blah blah, and you go to the interweb, and they say "Message Queue!" a million times.

Now since SOA was just a marketing term for EAI back in the bad-old-days of the late '90s, early '00's, this was valid. Clients really were dumb, because they'd never had to talk to anyone else before, and they weren't about to change now.
