Rob commented on PROTON-491:
----------------------------

As an alternative to the mentioned solution, or in addition to, it would be 
nice to be able to have a user defined link name. For our use case, we use the 
link name to understand some context about the client on the broker/sever side.

> # Abstract
> The qpid-proton 'messenger' implementation currently uses hard-coded 
> receiver-xxx and sender-xxx link names for all attachments.
> # Description
> I believe the AMQP 1.0 spec says here that:- although client-ids do not need 
> to be unique, the triplet of <client-id>, <link-name> and <server-id>  *is* 
> guaranteed to be unique.
> http://docs.oasis-open.org/amqp/core/v1.0/os/amqp-core-transport-v1.0-os.html#doc-idp298752
> However, the qpid-proton Messenger code seems to have all link-name's 
> hard-coded to sender-xxx and receiver-xxx
> As an easyfix, I would suggest that by default the topicname part of the 
> address should be appended to the link-name (instead of -xxx)
> e.g., amqp://localhost/topicName --> sender-topicName / receiver-topicName
> However, that would still cause a clash if the same messenger wanted to make 
> two subscriptions to the same topic, so perhaps the Messenger implementation 
> needs to track what link names it has allocated and ensure a unique name is 
> assigned each time?
