  Concerning this issue, I've read about the basicQos() call.

Do you think that I can use this call to force the server to send me 
a maximum of, say, 1000 messages that I could store in an array in 
handleDelivery() (without blocking), and, once I've counted 1000 
messages exactly, I trigger another thread to store all messages and 
then ack all messages ?
