[rabbitmq-discuss] Q replication anxiety

This is causing me anxiety:  "... All data/state required for the  
operation of a RabbitMQ broker is replicated across all nodes ...  
exception to this are message queues, which currently only reside on  
the node that created them ..."[1]

My setup is on ec2.   My testing randomly kill's machines; in service  
of assuring the system can self heal.  Obviously I'm going to be  
miserable if I kill the machines with Q's on them?  I guess i need to  
be sure the disks the Q's fall onto aren't wiped (which they are today).

Is my anxiety misplaced, if not then how do others address it.
