The Erlang client is still experimental and we have done no release 
packaging. Hence the need to work from the source repos. If there were 
packaged versions they would include the necessary parts of / dependency 
on the server code.

Regarding the repo structure, we could have both the server and the 
client depend on a rabbitmq-common source repo, but that doesn't really 
make any material difference to the effort required in building & 
running the Erlang client since we'd simply be switching one dependency 
- on the rabbitmq-server repo - for another. It would also complicate 
the server build & packaging.
