created, so we cannot guarantee that the queue will have a ring limit policy. This leads to
the possibility that the queue can become full, thus causing subsequent send() calls to the
exchange the queue is on to block indefinitely.

It would not be entirely trivial, but neither should it be too 
difficult. I agree it would be a useful addition.

One other suggestion however would be to check available capacity before 
sending. If sender.available() returns 0 then you will block; if it 
returns a non-zero result you will not. In some ways that leaves you in 
a more predictable state. You don't timeout waiting for the status of a 
sent message, you simply avoid sending it and take some other action.
