This sounds ideal!

I think that what's going to happens is that the existing simplistic system
is going to remain as is.  I think STOMP will start evolving some extensions
that do more fancy mappings of STOMP frames to JMS messages.  And the STOMP
client will select which mapping strategy it expects to be used when it
connects. something like:

frame-translation: default


frame-translation: json

So one day we might develop a ruby client that uses the json translation and
the messages are encoded in JSON for example.  This could allow stomp
clients to receive Map messages too.
