Generally, if you want to wait for messages from RabbitMQ, you
will need to `wait`. If you must do computation at the same time -
it gets complicated.

The usual way of dealing with the problem is to use threads.

In one thread you could wait on a rabbitmq client, in other
thread you could do cpu-intensive computation.
But it's easy to mess up with the synchronization, so beware.

Alternatively, you may review the Puka client library:
This library allows you to build your own `select` waiting
loop, which may help if you want to `wait` on multiple
socket descriptors (not only a rabbitmq client descriptor).
OTOH, it won't directly help with the problem of
latency-sensitive Rabbitmq connection and a CPU-intensive task.

Hope that helps,
