Adjusted accordingly.

Removed that comment at all, since the method looks simple and

Reverted. Note that for helper::Unknown some callers print a bit
misleading error message, when requests are dropped, e.g.:
"ERROR: storeID helper returned invalid result code. Wrong helper?"

I don't think we need this extra option. Currently we have a hard-coded
3 min. timeout, within which requests are keep queuing ignoring
[possible] overload. Probably you need another option to configure this
timeout? That would be a separate task, IMO.
