Exclusivity is on a per-connection basis. It sounds like you want a
notion of exclusivity based on consumer identity. That is not directly
supported by AMQP, but you can simulate it quite faithfully by declaring
an ordinary (non-auto-delete, non-exclusive) queue with a name that is
known only to the intended consumer.
