Also note that in RabbitMQ's federation, downstreams connect to 
upstreams, so you'd actually have to get Azure to connect to RabbitMQ.

An approach that could work is to build an AMQP 1.0 mini shovel/relay; 
an agent that resides on the local broker machines, consumes messages 
from the local broker's queues, and publishes them to Azure.
