> I'm using Camel to implement parallel processing of jobs in an SQS queue, and ran into
a few issues with the current implementation of the SQS component:
> # SqsConsumer uses a blocking/synchronous processor, which prevents parallel processing
of multiple messages from a single endpoint.
> # Having a maxMessagesPerPoll other than one doesn't seem to make sense, because any
messages not being actively processed should be left back in the queue for other consumers
to have a chance with.
> # Rollback processing doesn't go back to SQS and set the visibility timeout to zero,
which prevents immediate retries. 
> I propose the following solutions to these problems:
> # Use an asynchronous processor in SqsConsumer by way of getAsyncProcessor().  (Messages
in SQS aren't guaranteed to be FIFO anyway, so there should be no issue with order of processing.)
> # Replace maxMessagesPerPoll with maxInFlightMessages.  Put a semaphore in SqsConsumer
to control the maximum number of in flight messages, and when polling SQS always set the number
of available permits as the maximum number of messages to retrieve.
> # In the onFailure callback for an exchange set the visibility timeout in SQS to zero
via ChangeMessageVisibility.
> How does this sound?  I'm working on a patch.  This is my first work on Camel, so if
you see any problems with my approach let me know!
> Thanks,
> - Dan
