if one has data of finite length, but for which the eventual content
size is unknown at the outset, (how) is it intended to communicate it
through amqp? while it would be possible to chunk it in messages, it
is not clear how one would indicate that the data is complete. from
the description of queue.delete, one might conclude that, once the
content was sent, one could delete with no-wait disabled and if-empty
a, would that even work?
b, it makes queues into single-use entities.
c, it misuses an exception, which should be signal an error, to
indicate the end of the stream.
how is one intended to accomplish this without buffering the content
at the source in order to determine the message content size?
