That is actually a wart in AMQP. Exchange, queue and binding
declaration are idempotent - which is a good thing - but the
corresponding destructive operations are not.
Also, there is an inconsistency here between unbind and, say, queue and
exchange deletion. The latter raise 404 *channel* error when the
mentioned resources do not exist. But the unbind is required to raise a
connection error under similar conditions.
