Unix command line queue utility

These small utilities allow creating very lightweight job queue systems which require no setup, maintenance, supervision, or any long-running processes.

The intended purpose is ad-hoc queuing of command lines e.g. for building several targets of a Makefile, downloading multiple files one at a time, running benchmarks in several configurations, or simply as a glorified nohup, but as any good Unix tool, it can be abused for whatever you like.
