Thanks, ramoboder.

I'm working through the issues now.  Have had some success, but decision
makers still somewhat hung up on the damned versioning. It's hard to claim
that we're using an industry standard in AMQP 0.9.1, even though many
consider it the defacto standard.  There's business value in being able to
claim compatibility with the version that Microsoft, IBM, and Apache are
all supporting.
