Well, from the perspective of the server a) and b) are the same thing
(the server cannot be sure the client has seen the message unless it

However, it looks like what we actually do is to consider it delivered
(for the purposes of the immediate flag but not any other) as soon as we
start to send the message to the consumer. Hmm.
