[rabbitmq-discuss] convention for "more/last message" pattern

It seems like a not-uncommon design pattern to send a data set (of
some kind) as a series of sequential messages, where each item in the
set is a separate message, and with a flag to indicate that there are
more messages coming, or that the message represents the last entry.
Is there a recommended way of implementing this pattern in AMQP?  i.e.
is there a flag to set on the message, or is it expected that such
information should be in the payload?

I thought about kludging it into the reply-to field, but that seems too ugly.
