For 2.5.1 I tried to create some more .deb packages for the other
plugins, following the Ubuntu model used in rabbitmq-stomp, but oh my,
it was indeed tricky to achieve and I gave up and basically pinned the
server package at a given point so it didn't upgrade automatically and
But this is a worry, since it's inevitable that someone else will,
sooner or later, notice that the version is behind and upgrade it
without realising the implications. :(
