[Mono-dev] Removing RabbitMQ

We cannot easily just remove the assemblies as that'd be quite bad breaking
change but I'd be interested myself if there are any users of these very
old assemblies.

I am ok to deprecate them in the favour of nuget packages but the actual
source code removal will have to wait.
