It's also worth pointing out here that connection.redirect is a bit of a
crude, blunt weapon, and in fact has been *removed* for AMQP 0-9-1. When
we transition to 0-9-1, it will no longer be available: it will be up to
clients to know how to connect to the broker. This seems like a
limitation, but I personally view it as an improvement: it means that
AMQP concentrates on *messaging*, and leaves load balancing up to load
balancers -- as it should :-)
