The /usr/sbin/rabbitmqctl which ships with the RPM / Debian packages is 
only a wrapper, there to enforce the root requirement and su to the 
rabbitmq user for people who've installed RabbitMQ the normal way and 
don't want to care about Erlang cookies.

If you Know What You Are Doing and want to sidestep all that, the 
unwrapped rabbitmqctl script can be found at 
/usr/lib/rabbitmq/bin/rabbitmqctl instead.
