Are you maintaining the RabbitMQ bits in Mono? If so is there any
chance the non-free licensed spec files [0] can be removed and replaced
with a naked interface instead? The issue behind that is that all
source files must be free (as defined by the DFSG [1]) that are part of
the Debian distribution.

I had to remove RabbitMQ from the Mono 2.4 Debian packages because of
this :(
