FWIW, I've written a rabbit_management module that exposes an internal  
server API via Hessian over AMQP, so all you need to do is to call a  
Java interface that exposes the same methods as the internal API.  
There is some client side glue that proxies this Java interface by an  
AMQP RPC handler, but this is transparent to the calling application.  
At the moment it only exposes the rabbit_access_module, so it does  
exactly what the rabbitmqctl script does, but it's been designed to  
expose an arbitrary module that is deployed in the server VM via AMQP  
in an SCA-style fashion.

I don't know if this is the kind of thing you are looking for, or  
whether you're after the existence of specific management API's in  
rabbit to perform specific tasks.
