[rabbitmq-discuss] Reliable delivery via exclusive queues

Mostly for convenience. I wanted to use anonymous (autonamed) queues, but 
not have to worry about cleaning them up later. *Auto-delete* might also 
fit the bill, but seems to have the same problems as *exclusive* as far as 
I can tell. I'm also just curious if I'm right about the behavior of *exclusive, 
*because if so it seems like a feature that should be used only rarely and 
very carefully. 

I'm thinking I might instead implement a naming scheme for the consumers, 
and use the *x-expires* argument to have the queues clean themselves up 
after perhaps 1 hour or so.
