I'm writing a library called TwOTP (https://launchpad.net/twotp) which
allows to communicate with Erlang nodes using Python/Twisted (mentioned
in some posts). I've started using RabbitMQ, and I wrote some code to
show information you can easily extract.

Here you can see the summary page:


And here the virtual host page:


You can find the script in TwOTP source tree, and it will be in the next
release: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~therve/twotp/trunk/annotate/head%

I've written that in an hour to show what's possible to do, but I'd be
happy to focus more on it if you have some ideas.
