I don't know if that generally holds, I guess you could envisage some
LCA scheme. However, for all practical purposes, I think this is more
in the application domain, or is at least an overlay concern rather
than something intrinsic to the caching mechanism. What I am trying to
say is that this is has more to do with a usage pattern rather than
the fundamental messaging infrastructure.

No, but it should be :-)

We are currently re-implementing the queue data structure to be able
to set TTLs on a per-message basis. No ETA on that feature, though.

I think this kind of thing should be a layered concern.
