FWIW this isn't a good way of using messaging; you should ideally only
consume messages that you can actually process. e.g. using a selector
or queue naming strategy or something

Yes, use transactions and rollback.

Though I think a better solution would be to try to only consume
messages you can process. If noone can process the messages for any
reason, consume the message but send some kind of 'match failed'
message to another queue
