After further testing, using /+ +/ comments to block out the ENTIRE contents of
the queue class, as well as removing all derived classes (stacks and pools) from
the queue module, I still suffered from these errors:

alliance.d(74): template instance queue is not a template declaration, it is a i
alliance.d(74): queue!(ac_event) is used as a type
alliance.d(74): variable alliance.alliance.ac_game.event_queue voids have no val

The problem, as the cryptic error message hinted at, was a name conflict between
the module "queue" and the class template name "queue".  I wanted to keep the
queue as a portable module for use in my other projects, but went ahead and
renamed the queue class to "ac_queue" for consistency with my other classes in
the project -- not surprisingly, everything then compiled perfectly (working
perfectly is another matter... I still have to write a test suite!).

I'll have to think up of a good alternate name for the module and/or class when
I add it to my code library.
