The problem you will have is compiling the 1.7.x erlang client - it
needs to be compiled against the 1.7.x broker, because they share code.

However, *once* you have it compiled, you should find that the 1.7.x
erlang client works just fine with the 1.6.0 broker, though depending on
how you've got things installed, you may have issues with code paths and
the client finding code belonging to the 1.6.0 broker etc etc - if the
broker and client are on different machines then you'll be fine!

Also, because of the code sharing, using the direct connection will
almost certainly not work - you'll need to use the network connection.
