It should print out all activity in both directions when an AMQP client 
connects to it.

You should set things up like this:

   your program -------------> ]- 5673 Tracer -------> ]- 5672 RabbitMQ

so you connect to port 5673, the Tracer does its thing, and opens an 
outbound connection to port 5672. It will then relay all frames sent and 
received, printing them to stdout as it goes.
