This is from amqp 0-8 spec (

definition of parameters for consume:
<field name="exclusive" type="bit">
    request exclusive access
      Request exclusive consumer access, meaning only this consumer can
      access the queue.
<doc name="rule" test="amq_basic_02">
      If the server cannot grant exclusive access to the queue when asked,
      - because there are other consumers active - it MUST raise a channel
      exception with return code 403 (access refused).
