Yes. basic.recover with requeue = false is non-sensical if it's async,
which is the default in the 0-9-1 spec (IIRC). If you use the sync
version (which may be a RMQ extension - again IIRC), then that'll work
with requeue = false. Not all clients support this though.

All msgs delivered to the channel and unacknowledged will be requeued to
the queues from which they came.
