Yes, you're right, RabbitMQ does not support message priorities at all
at the moment, and yes, it is a fairly oft requested feature. We do have
plans to add support for it, but we don't have a release target for it
just yet. I'm afraid I don't have any more information that than -
basically: yes, we know people want it; yes, it's on our todo list; no,
we don't know when it'll get done.
