SubjectRe: [RFC, 2.6] a simple FIFO implementation

Looks good to me.

You're using `head' as "the place from which `get' gets characters" and
you're using `tail' as "the place where `put' puts characters". So the
FIFO is, logically:

tail head
* -> ******************** -> *
put get

I've always done it the other way: you put stuff onto the head and take
stuff off the tail. Now I have a horid feeling that I've always been
arse-about. hrm.
