   * the queue. Depending on the implementation and the setup, the accuracy of
   * the results of this function may vary.
   *
   * e.g. On a busy system with a large number of consumers and items, the
   * result might only be valid for a fraction of a second and not provide an
   * accurate representation.

  /**
   * Claims an item in the queue for processing.
   *
   * @param $lease_time
   *   How long the processing is expected to take in seconds, defaults to an
   *   hour. After this lease expires, the item will be reset and another
   *   consumer can claim the item. For idempotent tasks (which can be run
   *   multiple times without side effects), shorter lease times would result
   *   in lower latency in case a consumer fails. For tasks that should not be
   *   run more than once (non-idempotent), a larger lease time will make it
   *   more rare for a given task to run multiple times in cases of failure,
   *   at the cost of higher latency.
   *
   * @return
   *   On success we return an item object. If the queue is unable to claim an
   *   item it returns false. This implies a best effort to retrieve an item
   *   and either the queue is empty or there is some other non-recoverable
   *   problem.
   *
   *   If returned, the object will have at least the following properties:
   *   - data: the same as what what passed into createItem().
   *   - item_id: the unique ID returned from createItem().
   *   - created: timestamp when the item was put into the queue.
