[rabbitmq-discuss] One message instance in couple of queues

It is not clear to me what you are 'watching' these queues for, but if
you want to retrieve the message from the queues after a certain time,
then why not investigate Dead Letter Exchanges(DLX) and queue message

If the moderator's private queues have an expiry time (TTL) on them,
then messages that have been on the queue for that time will be deleted
-- if there is a DeadLetterExchange associated with the queues, the
deleted message will be re-published to the new exchange. You can
arrange for the DLX to route the message to a queue of your choice --
the monitor process need only listen on this queue.

Be sure to code the moderator carefully (so as not to drop a message
while moving it) using publisher confirms and acks.

for more information.

Just to perform some long time lock (It can be minute or hour, thus I can't use ack/nack to hold message in main queue). The goal is to monitor all moderators queues as well as main one. The problem is that I do not know all moderator's queues and I can't just monitor some fixed list because it regenerates dynamically.
