[rabbitmq-discuss] Question on RabbitMQ's message copying

To be more concrete,
will a fanout exchange that has bindings to n queues contain n physical
copies of the message. I understand that there is a need to buffer on the
client and this means that each client has a local copy. But in rabbit's
internal implementation, are there 'n' copies or just 1 physical copy.
