FWIW IBM Cloud Manager with OpenStack is still shipping qpid 0.30. We
switched to the default deployment being RabbitMQ in Kilo though (maybe
even Juno). But we do have a support matrix tested with qpid as the rpc
backend. Our mainline paths are tested with rabbitmq though since
that's the default backend for us now.
