This is great! Thanks!

Since you're talking about new features, how about a request? Since you're making federation config dynamic, how about configuration changes for shovel without having to restart the broker too?

And a bigger request? A counter for the number of messages that have passed through a queue? :)

Will cowboy make it's way in as a replacement for mochiweb? Have you guys seen any improvement in performance with it?
