[Mono-dev] [PATCH] Upgrade RabbitMQ libraries to version 1.5.3

Actually, due to tricky dependency issue, we don't use the spec/*.xml
files in the build; we've checked in the generated source (yes it is a
hack) and make the regeneration from the spec files a manual step
(this only needs to happen when I pull in a new version of RabbitMQ).
So deleting the spec/*.xml files isn't a problem technically, but it
may mean that we do not have "all" of the source code.

Does Debian package Apache QPid or OpenAMQ?  If so, how is it handled
those packages?
