What do instances of classes represent? Looks like they'd have to 
contain a mixture of attributes with completely different purposes. In 
particular there is a conflation of attributes for AMQP entities and 
AMQP commands.

For example, 'passive' is not an attribute of an AMQP queue; it's a flag 
on the queue.declare command. And 'message_count' is only something you 
get as a return of queue.declare, so accessing that attribute in any 
other context is meaningless.
