[rabbitmq-discuss] Persister crashes Rabbit

We have a system which includes a homogeneous set of message producers 
(we call switches) and a backoffice application which consumes these 
messages.  We have a guaranteed delivery requirement for the messages, 
we also require that the switches can continue to operate unhindered 
(assuming infinite disk space) during long periods of slow or 
non-consumption of messages by the backoffice.  I'm not familiar with 
rabbitMQ, but the implication I take from this thread is that rabbitMQ 
would not meet our requirements (at least not without significant extra 
bespoke work)  - is that a fair statement?
