[rabbitmq-discuss] Redefining queue/exchange attributes

Are there any plans to allow the modification of queue and exchange
attributes, say via the REST API?

At the moment if one must redefine the attributes of a queue or exchange,
you must destroy the queue or exchange and recreate it.  That is rather
disruptive in a production environment.  If means that bindings are
destroyed and must be recreated, that consumers must restart their
subscriptions, etc.

There are many scenarios where one would want to redefine the attributes.
 Either an error crept in during initial set up, or say, a node has gone
down and you want to redefine a HA queue by removing the dead node from its
config and adding a new node.
