Yes, but if you trick kernel settings, like putting very low tcp 
keepalive values, you don't need to have/enable heartbeat.

As far as I can remember, this is because oslo.messaging doesn't really 
require py-amqp but only kombu, so to ensure kombu depends of py-amqp 
1.4.0 we have to depends on kombu 3.0.7 (that have amqp>=1.4.0 in its 
requirements I guess).
