[rabbitmq-discuss] Unable to build Debian package since 2.7.0

I'd like to take this opportunity to add some things to my debian
package wishlist:

1. An /etc/default/rabbitmq file that contains something like START=no
2. Modification to rabbitmq-server.init to make use of that file so
rabbitmq won't start unless START is equal to a true value.

This construct is a part of many other debian daemons and is generally
well understood/accepted. In fact the rabbitmq postrm script currently
takes this file into account already. We make this modification to the
package and put it in our repo because if rabbitmq starts before we
drop our cookie into place (for cluster membership) Bad Things happen.
