Hi Mark,

Lynton's kindly sent his example program. You might also be interested
in exploring Barry Pedersen's Python AMQP client,
http://barryp.org/software/py-amqplib/, which has a few example programs
that come with it, notably

http://hg.barryp.org/py-amqplib/file/tip/demo/demo_receive.py and

With regard to your other question, RabbitMQ by default doesn't ship
with *any* queues preconfigured. You need to create them from your
applications using queueDeclare() - for instance, from Barry's Python
AMQP library documentation,

  ch.queue_declare('queue name')

Barry's written up a nice overview document that's available at
