[rabbitmq-discuss] exchanges and message processing

This is in relation to a thread I started on the ruby-amqp list:
My question is regarding exchanges, queues and dealing with messages
that I would like to get processed only once. I am sending messages
containing json and would like to use a field from the json as the
routing key to alleviate needing to do numerous case statements in my
code. It seems that fanout and direct exchanges would not work since
they have possibility of having messages getting processed more than
once by different consumers. The responder on the ruby-amqp list
mentioned a shared queue that is in the 091 spec. But this seems to put
me back at using a long case statement.
In an ideal situation I would have multiple consumers (written without
epic case statements) and messages that get consumed once and only once.
Any suggestions on how to go about doing something like this?
