    You pose an interesting question - could anyone educate us on just
what the practical and architectural differences are between Spread &
message queue systems like RabbitQ & OpenAMQ? Is one an appropriate
substitute for the other and what are their primary strengths and
weaknesses in terms of system event notification, application
messaging, and deployment? Does it make sense to use a combination of
these technologies in some cases?
