uses a direct exchange that will deliver a message to multiple queues if multiple
queues were bound with the same routing key (queue names do not matter).
uses the default exchange which all queues are bound to automatically
with routing key = queue name. because 2 queues cannot have the same name,
we cannot get into the situation above.
So make sure the example you use is equivalent to tutorial 2: uses basic.qos = 1 and default
exchange. Or bind queues to amq.direct with different routing keys (but it is
a needless complication for what tutorial 2 covers).
See http://www.rabbitmq.com/tutorials/amqp-concepts.html if something isn't clear.
