.listen()                  // listen to redis updates
.process(type, processfn)  // start a processor of a specific task type
.processAll(obj)           // obj: {key:type,val:data} and nestable
.query(query, cb)          // query: string id, array of string ids, or filter object
.queryDetail(query, cb)    // query: string id, array of string ids, or filter object
