[rabbitmq-discuss] Channel.basicPublish to a non-existent exchange does not throw

Another comment on basicPublish failures:

It would be great if the AlreadyClosedException that results from the first
failed basicPublish gave a helpful shutdown reason such as channel.close,
reply-code 404. As it is, there's not always a way to determine why the
channel was closed without waiting for the ShutdownListener to be called
(which could be later). This is crucial as it prevents me from knowing
whether the basicPublish is something that should result in me recovering
the channel and retrying the publish, or not.
