it appears that the FAQ page describing the new reject semantics has

Here's my current understanding:

Let's say we have a message queue containing messages <m2, m1>, where m1
will be delivered next.

Let's further assume we have a prefetch count of 1 on our single consumer,
which is subscribed to the queue.

Then, if the consumer rejects the message, it will be resend to the consumer
before m2 is sent, right?

In other words: from a consumer perspective, "reject(requeue=true)" behaves
exactly like "recover" in the scenario above.
