Having some experience using SQS I would expect that there would be a mode
something like what SQS provides where a message gets picked up by one 
consumer (let's say by short-polling) and is hidden for a timeout duration from 
other consumers, so that the consumer has time to ack. Is that how you are 
using the term 'claim' in this case?
