I just started evaluating RabbitMQ, seems like a great solution so far, I
vastly prefer it to the heavier java implementations. My problem with all
the AMQP solutions is the lack of a perl client (though the Apache Qpid
project has a ruby one). Anyone using perl/AMQP and have a client (or
interested in collaborating to develop one)?
