It's true that R13 versions are preferred.  On the other hand, we
currently support erlang versions back to R12-B3, and therefore rabbitmq
is supported in EPEL5.  I hope that no-one wanting to try rabbit is
investing hours of effort to build a later erlang version, unless they
are sure that their application really needs it.
