Glad to hear you got things to work. It's an interesting and novel use 
of the 'immediate' flag.

An alternative approach would be to monitor the queue length (e.g. by 
issuing a passive queue.declare) and create/destroy workers based on 
that information. That way queues can still do queuing, which helps in 
smoothing out temporary spikes.
