[rabbitmq-discuss] The relationship of Channels to Consumers

When building consumers dynamically it's possible to either create a
new channel for them or to reuse an old one, or to use a pool of them.
I'm wondering if anyone knows any good practices for dealing with that
relationship. Is the building channel call expensive? Are channels
capable of handling multiple streams and thus a good fit for use
across many consumers.

As I understand it channels are processes on the server side that
store the state of the connection and help in some way with
communicating requests and responses. But beyond that I'm just not
clear about what to do with them.
