I think so, although I'm surprised Alexis didn't know its name ..

Nope; have a look at the README --
It's labeled "experimental", though it's dead simple and there are few
moving parts. The biggest limitation you may face, *may* face, is that
it's not written to be hugely scalable -- it just does the simplest
I've uploaded an ez on github, which you can drop into
rabbitmq-server/plugins/; it should work with v2.3.1 and default branch.
It'll be easier than compiling it yourself.

fixed the README.
