[rabbitmq-discuss] load distribution among queue consumers and consumer_tag in non-exclusive mode

I see. so tags does not affect delivery. If I have 4 channels reading from
same queue, messages will be distributed across 4 channels.
Another question I had, regarding reading multiple messages. Consider a
distributed WAN deployment situation, where consumer and rabbitmq broker
are 60 ms apart (RTT of 120 ms). If consumer can get only one message from
queue in one read, then it can only get 7-8 messages/second. We can use
multi-threading, but if there is support of reading multiple messages in
one read, that could improve the read rate even in WAN deployment and with
single thread - I was wondering if there is a support for such read or if
there is a plan..
