It should be possible to load balance connections to a RabbitMQ cluster
using ELB's TCP connection load balancing.  But note that this approach
would only be appropriate for certain use cases, as you will have no
control over which node queues get stored on.  But for example, if you
have a pub-sub application, and all queues are auto-delete, then you
should be fine.
