Hi Carl,

I've added a README to the rabbitmq-stomp repository, including the
section below. Please let me know if this works for you!

Configuring the broker on Debian to start the plugin automatically

If you've installed the rabbitmq-server package on debian or ubuntu,
the broker will pick up extra configuration from
/etc/default/rabbitmq. To tell the server to start your plugin, first
make sure it is compiled, and then add the following text to

  -pa /path/to/rabbitmq-stomp/ebin
     stomp_listeners [{"",61613}]
     extra_startup_steps [{"STOMP-listeners",rabbit_stomp,kickstart,[]}]'

making sure to update the "/path/to/rabbitmq-stomp/ebin" appropriately
for your system. Then restart the broker with

sudo /etc/init.d/rabbitmq-server restart

You should then be able to connect to port 61613 using a STOMP client
of your choice.
