But there's a difference between waiting (at most) 10 minutes versus
"[making] sure all of the jboss messages have been processed". What if
they're not all done within 10 minutes? Then you haven't in fact made sure
they've all been processed, right?, since you're going to bail after that,

So which do you actually want to do: 1) make sure they've all been
processed, or 2) give it 10 minutes, then bail?
