This is what the two clients built on top of the Java one — Langohr and March Hare — do.
It’s not a hack but a necessary work around because connection recovery is currently
not performed by the Java client (it should be a core feature, if you ask me).

So this is a viable approach.

Take a look at Lyra, too: https://github.com/jhalterman/lyra.
