Qpid auto generates code from the spec, but with changes this small I would
think we could work in a few bits of non-generated code to support both
versions.  Given the degree of change in 0-10 I'm not wanting to expend much
effort on 0-9 - but I think that having 0-9 compatability at the broker
really shouldn't be a big deal (it may not be able to be done with
particular beauty though).  [For instance I think Qpid actually already has
the basic.consume filter argument].

Given Martin's claim that it took them 1 day to implement the changes... i
would think that it should be possible for Qpid (and Rabbit if you like) to
have versions that work with both protocol revisions.  However the real
focus will be on getting 0-10 implemented.
