Router directory scanning policy

Doing some testing of zmailer, I poured a whole load of mail into it
and its whilst its doing more or less as I wanted, I've built up a
fair backlog in the router.

The problem is that the router code scans the directory every 10s, so
if your directory gets huge it takes an age. I was going to change the
code so that so that if it has more than MAXROUTERCHILDS worth of
outstanding work it doesn't bother to scan the directories (or rather
it abandons the scan) - something like this (this is untested):

Good plan/bad plan?
