It might be, if librabbitmq could be BSD licensed. That's one route.
Equally we could use 'section 13' of the MPL to allow use of
librabbitmq under the GPL, or if we felt perverse, the LGPL. Or, it
may be possible to use MPL here.
Can you tell me:
1. if your plugin must be distributed with Drizzle?
2. how your plugin uses librabbitmq?
