I can't understand some amqp concepts because they are new to me. If I use 
pub/sub pattern (just as described in tutorial), there is exchange and 
consumers' queues bound with it. Do I understand right that there is no way 
for consumers to know whether there is client who writes to this exchange? 
Moreover, there is no way to know if the publisher is dead or just there is 
nothing to publish?

What is the right way to implement subscribers' behaviour such that they 
move to some 'autonomous' state in case of publisher death or disconnection?
