Think so? I've been looking for *something* that could enable me to  
control order of message processing. Say I have distributed  
asynchronous data processing service, which uses RabbitMQ for queueing  
tasks, and would like to prioritize them depending on  data volume  
(tiny packages are processed first). Priorities seemed to be perfect  
solution, but unfortunately later I realized it's not supported yet.
