[rabbitmq-discuss] Randomized Round-Robin?

Hi Group

I have a setup with many workers on several hosts; each worker consumes 
tasks from a work queue. 

When a host is booted, all workers on that host are launched 

This seems to have the effect that messages are first rounded to worker 
1..N on host A, then worker 1..N on host B, etc. This basically means that 
only one of the hosts is doing the bulk of the work at any given time. 

What I would like to achieve is that a random worker is chosen instead of 
the deterministic round-robin.

Any ideas?
