That's the primary downside, it uses an unbounded queue to collect deliveries,
which may cause an OOM exception.

By the way, could you point me to the page that says it's deprecated?
We should either add a proper annotation or revisit this decision because QueueingConsumer
is still used in one of the tutorials.
