This is a feature request to implement a skeleton and a central config file
for RabbitMQ modules(extensions).
If modules will use an Erlang behaviour, RabbitMQ could start/stop and
monitor the module automatically.

A good reference is the gen_mod in Ejabberd:
You activate a module by adding it to the list of modules in the config
You can add module specific config options and Ejabberd let you access the
settings in run-time.
Each module implements:
start(Host, Opts) -> ok
stop(Host) -> ok

start and stop are good places to manage custom mnesia tables for example.
