AMQP/Rabbit could hardly do anything different - if the sole condition 
for auto-deletion was that there are no consumers then the queue would 
get deleted straight after creation, before you've had a chance to 
attach any consumers.

Couldn't you make the queue 'exclusive' instead of 'auto-delete'?

Or, alternatively, set a lease (http://www.rabbitmq.com/ttl.html#queue-ttl).
