Unfortunately, setting the prefetchSize on the NetworkConnector URL does not
change the behaviour.  For example, if you set prefetchSize=1, the slow
consumer's side of the bridge will receive a message, enqueue it to the
local instance of the shared queue and ACK the message.  As soon as the
producer's side of the bridge receives the ACK, it sends another message and
the process continues as fast as the network connection allows.

The problem is that the consumer's side of the bridge ACKs the message from
the producer's instance of the shared queue independently of the consumer
ACKing the messages from the consumer's insatnce of the shared queue.

What we discovered through testing is that setting the prefetechSize on the
network connection is ineffectual at balancing the distribution of shared
queue messages between slow and fast consumers that are consuming from
remote instances of the shared queue.  As Bruce alluded to, the reason is
that the bridge does not maintain/access the state of the actual consumers
of the queue for which it is bridging.
