Unfortunately the "exclusive" flag in AMQP 0-9-1 makes the queue 
exclusive to the *connection*, not the channel. This feels kinda weird 
since almost everything else is scoped to channels, but it's in the spec 
and therefore what we implement.

auto_delete is *solely* about deleting when the last consumer goes.
