There is but there is no timeline.

Can you explain why? If you primarily want messages from the “fast” queue be consumed
without waiting for all the “slow” queue or you want that if there’s at least one “fast” message
enqueued, all “slow” message processing stops until there are no more “fast” ones?

In the former case, you can simply use two queues and two consumers on separate channels.
