Agreed! For something so apparently simple (sending messages from
producers to consumers) messaging can be amazingly complicated :)

But I'm sure we will be able to come up with some levels of reuse
across various protocols. e.g. I've already seen some quite good
layering in the soon-to-be-contributed C++ client for ActiveMQ (e.g. a
single threaded C++ layer first, then a multi threaded layer, then a
JMS-like abstraction etc).

I'm sure we'll be able to add most semantics behind a standard API and
layer added features above it where need be.
