Fair enough :-)

For your delectation, two new tags:


The "0.1" is the version number, and the "amqp_0_8" indicates which
version of the spec each tag supports. Slightly odd, I know. So the tag
with the "amqp_0_8" suffix is against the default branch, and the one
with the "amqp_0_9_1" suffix is against the amqp_0_9_1 branch, which has
default merged into it regularly, so they hold roughly the "same" code,
up to the differences required by the differences in the spec versions.

Go with librabbitmq-XX.YY-amqp_0_8 for compatibility with
currently-released versions of RabbitMQ server.
