Suggestion from customer to have this on this page: http://dev.iron.io/mq/
I agree, this is probably the most common usage of IronMQ.
So instead of just get example, it would have the typical polling loop, something like:
msg = queue.get()
# do something with the message here
unless msg = queue.get
next sleep 1
# what's the message?
# other stuff
Removing my assignment.
