1) It's a boolean, so a new constant is not required.
2) You set the variable "to_queue" with this value but the variable is not used
3) Is there a sense to add a filter with this variable to 0?

I think "to_queue" variable and this constant are useless.

PS: it seems I'm the only person worried by the filtering API.
So maybe we shouldn't integrate it at all?
