You can specify the property to use as the key when creating the queue 
by naming it as the value for 'qpid.last_value_queue_key' in the 
arguments to the declare.

This was first available from the 0.10 release in the c++ broker, and is 
now the only argument needed to enable LVQ behaviour. Prior to that the 
broker hardcoded this to 'qpid.LVQ_key'. The 0.10 release also made the 
previous modes irrelevant (you no longer have to choose between 
intuitive behaviour for browsers and correct consolidation of queue state).
