[rabbitmq-discuss] How to deal with duplicated msgs when using HA mirror?

What I've been doing is keeping a log in memcached of what tasks were in
process, and then persisting those to some kind of non-volatile storage,
along with their completion status. If I get a message for the same task, I
check to see if another process was already handling it before starting it
on one of the consumers.
