Bear in mind that RabbitMQ doesn't actually block incoming connections 
when the memory alarm is raised. Instead it only blocks connections 
which are publishing; it's perfectly ok for a client to connect and consume.

Also bear in mind that memory alarms are generally very transient, i.e. 
they shouldn't last more than a few seconds. Rejecting connections 
during that time seems a tad severe.

I'm curious what the use case is here.
