Also, I neglected to mention the tutorials...


The section "Messaging Patterns and Common Scenarios" contains links to a bunch of messaging patterns and idioms that people have found useful in practice and how to realize them on AMQP/Rabbit.

Best regards,

Is there a secret comma operator for routing keys that I'm not aware of for use with QueueBind?  If I call QueueBind three times, will the result be cumulative? Are channels expensive on the RMQ server? How about on the client side?
