Same here, our main use case is auto-scaling with our consumer code, i.e.
app looks to see how many messages are pending and if thresholds are met,
will kick off new threads if allowed.

That's actually something I've been wanting to bring up on the list.

Read-only admin or more granular ACL controls with R/W bits for each
setting… either would satisfy my needs.
