[rabbitmq-discuss] Reliable delivery via exclusive queues

I'm looking at using queues with the *exclusive* option for distributing 
configuration updates in my application. However, I'm worried that using 
the *exclusive* option makes the queue unreliable in the event of transient 
network problems. My thinking is that if the connection drops, then the 
queue is deleted along with any messages in it. My consumer will also be 
disconnected for some period of time while it reconnects and declares a new 
queue & bindings, during which time any new messages will not be delivered. 
Is that correct? If so, it seems like *exclusive* queues should not be used 
for messages you don't want to lose?
