Hi again, 
Been doing a lot of googling on the queue/topic/listening for consumed 
messages count an found this on activemq : 

It allows one to check the count of currently listening consumer a 

Is there anything like this in rabbit mq ?
This might allow me to create a listener that would only send a message to 
notify the first manager that the references were removed.
Another could be to define the "delete referenrences" message to live for x 
consumptions (x being the number of listener on the "delete references" 
queue) and add an advisory listener on the deletion of the message from the 
queue to process deletion of initial data.
