A background/daemon thread would be preferred for our situation as well.
This configurable option would be great.

In our ASP.NET applications we hook the app domain unload event and try to
complete our pending rabbit operations and close things down. Maybe
something along these lines should be recommended in the docs. Doing this
along with making the client use a background thread means you still get the
chance to cleanup and know what has and hasn't been written to the exchange,
and you also know your app will actually shutdown and not hang.

        Thread.GetDomain().DomainUnload += new


        void RabbitmqAsyncCommandService_DomainUnload(object sender,
EventArgs e)
            if (null != _cnn)
                //wait for stuff to finish (up to a few seconds)... 
                //close the channels...
