To be precise: switching to a different AMQP specification XML file is
something that's done at compile-time, and is a bit of a hack. We have a
good approach in the pipeline for getting smooth interoperation for
current 0-8/0-9 implementations, but the *current* Java client can't
have its "dialect" switched at runtime.

Expect client-side support (as simple as using a different
SocketFactory) for SSL/TLS in the next release. The server-side of the
approach is to use relaying SSL proxy, e.g. stunnel4
