Well technically you can do that already. If you don't want it
requeued just consume it and toss it, if you want it requeued just
recreate the channel. I'm not sure that a message in the process of
being consumed when the broker dies is requeued to the back. My
experience is the queue comes up in the state it was in when the
broker died.
