The plugin hasn't changed much in recent months, people have been using it in
production for a long time now, and I don't personally plan on making any large
changes to it, so it feels relatively stable to me -- but please don't take
that as an official announcement, it's just my own feelings on the matter!

With regard to risk for AMQP clients connected to the same broker: Erlang
enforces reasonable levels of isolation between clients. If an individual STOMP
connection, or even the whole STOMP plugin, crashes, the rest of the broker
will in most situations continue to run unaffected.
