Hi Raoul,

if you set prefetch-count to 1 on the consumer channel then each consumer
on the queue will get one message at a time. Exploiting the default broker
behavior by which multiple consumers on a queue are delivered messages in a
round-robin fashion, the end result should be what you described.
