Stomp support is good; we've lots of clients so far and the protocol
has been well and trully hammered...

Though there are sometimes some gremlins with certain clients; but the
clients are generally simple enough to be easy to fix if you hit any
issues. (e.g. the perl client is quite small and pretty simple code to
fix if there's anything you need changing etc).

Yeah - the perl would connect to a Master which could failover to a Slave...

the only thing that needs adding is the ability to failver in the Perl
client which I don't think is there yet.
