The STOMP adapter will read the 'default_vhost' configuration item from 
the 'rabbit' application, so you can override this.

Hmm. The trouble is that the vhost is really part of the login details. 
Not to say this is impossible, but it might be quite fiddly and weird 
acting. TBH I would rather the client libraries made it less hackish :)
