You can't do this directly in pre 1-0 versions of the protocol. The 
0-8/0-9/0-10 protocols all model acknowledgment as something that 
happens within the same context as the message transfer, and if that 
context goes away (i.e. the connection/session dies or is closed), then 
the message is requeued.

You can achieve the equivalent of this by ensuring that each consumer 
has an exclusive queue. For topics this is easy, you just have durable 
queues bound into the exchange. For a shared queue scenario you'd need 
extra logic (either in your clients or in a separate process) to shuffle 
messages from the shared queue into the exclusive queues.
