I use the Core protocol or Openwire protocol, everything works as expected. I am able to use
the "setStringProperty" in my ActiveMQServerPlugin and it adds a header that I can then access
in my Camel consumer code. However, if I try to add a property to a message that was sent
using the AMQP protocol, it does not stay set on the message. It appears to me that this is
because the AMQP message is more protected? Maybe it has all of the data in an immutable ByteBuffer?
I've tried using the "reencode" method on the
class, but it causes an error; it can't parse the message back out, it says something about
an unknown constructor. (Being handled here

AMQP ApplicationProperties are immutable so you cannot change or add to 
them in flight, that would violate the AMQP specification.

> Justin, I've looked at the remoting interceptors. I think I decided against using them
because it does not expose as much information to me as I wanted. I'm specifically trying
to take the authentication credentials and then create some kind of authentication token to
attach to the message that I can then use in my consuming code.

 Have you explored that possibility?
