You'll need a way for one task to know about the other, then you can
call putq() on the destination task to enqueue the message.

If your different tasks are related (e.g., different steps in
processing) you may want to look into the Streams framework as well
(see C++NPv2 chapter 9 and APG chapter 18; for book info see
