If you're running management already then you could look at 
rabbitmqadmin. This is a command line tool that talks http to the 
management plugin.

rabbitmqadmin won't let you start / stop / reset / cluster but it will 
do most other things.

 From your mail it looks like you're running an older version of 
RabbitMQ where the management plugin did not come with rabbitmqadmin - 
but the HTTP API is fairly constant so just grabbing the latest version 
from hg should work pretty well:
