Huh, that's interesting. I'm curious though - how do the properties of
your implementation differ from our default? - I'm not trying to
discourage you at all, just curious. Even if it's just for gaining
understanding and experience of implementing Rabbit's internal APIs,
it's still valuable.

Simplest way is to set the msg_store_index_module param in your
rabbitmq.config file - check the rabbit.app to see how it's set, but
there's nothing unusual there. Also check rabbitmq-toke which
(re-)implements the same interface and probably changes the env slightly
differently... ;)
