The difference is in how the two clients construct the name for the 
subscription queue that is bound into the response exchange. The python 
client uses the name option in the link on its own; the c++ client 
appends that name to the name of the exchange, separated by an 
underscore. (The fact that your subject and name here are the same is a 
co-incidence, they need not be and the queue name follows the name 
option not the subject).

The primary purpose of the name option was in identifying a link so that 
you could reconnect and resubscribe to the same queue. I.e. to allow for 
links that logically at least survived a loss of connection. I mention 
this only because by specifying auto-delete, the queue will be deleted 
when the connection is lost, so will be recreated every time.

The clients should behave the same way though for consistency. I'd be 
happy to fix that if you want to raise a JIRA.

Also might be worth pointing out that the x-bindings element you have 
there is actually redundant. The presence of the subject will 
automatically create the same binding.
