That's a really interesting idea, and it is a lot easier to implement 
than per-message TTLs.

So here is a question to all RabbitMQ users who have been asking / 
secretly wishing for TTLs: Would per-queue TTLs, i.e. all messages 
getting the same TTL when they are enqueued, be good enough (or even 
preferable) for you? Or do you definitely need to be able to specify 
TTLs on per-message basis (and if so, what is the use case)?
