Ahh, yes there has been some discussion about this sort of thing
internally too - you're not the only people who want to know from whom a
message came. At the moment, the best I can suggest is to use
permissions to ensure each user can only publish to one exchange - have
an exchange per user. Then, in deliveries, the exchange is indicated,
which means when you receive a message, you can, from its exchange, know
who sent it.
