[development] Queue as a supplement to cron

I sometimes find myself building a queue in a hook_cron()
implementation. I decided to make a separate module for this,
job_queue, http://drupal.org/project/job_queue. It provides an API
which takes a function name and array of arguments for later execution
on cron. The only UI is a list of queued function calls.

Is this functionality something that people would like to see in core?
Search module has a 'queue' of unindexed content, would it benefit
from having an abstracted queue?
