I think this is a broker issue rather than one specifically for the 
management plugin.

Are you talking about some scenario where the broker could reinsert the 
purged messages if necessary? That might be... involved. Of course, it 
could move them to another queue (we've been idly thinking about that) 
but I don't know if that solves your problem. If all you want is a log, 
scripting something with basic.get is probably simple enough.

Cheers, Simon
