I am really finding the book useful, thank you.

Reading section 4.4.2 and the part about Unknown Errors, I think it is worth mentioning that if you are not careful, an error could create an infinite loop because it keeps retrying. Is there any way that one can specify a max retries and put the tuple into some type of "dead-letter-queue"? This has burned me before where an unexpected exception introduced by a coding error in an external system caused an infinite loop.
