Note that the semantics of qos have changed in 3.3.0:


Per-consumer prefetch will be fixed at the moment the consumer is 
created. Per-channel prefetch can be changed after the fact, as before. 
But it was never a great idea to do that since if you set qos after 
consuming then the broker can deliver as many messages as it wants in 
between the two commands, which is unlikely to be what you want.
