Yeah, that's right.  I have a really terrible mental model of how
rabbit works right now.  I know, consciously, that consume is async,
and that the server sends a lot of messages as soon as the first
consume call is made, but somehow it doesn't click in my head.  I'll
get the hang of this sooner or later :)

Yeah, I'll have a look at that.  Thanks!
