Also correct. Though #2 does not get much attention or maintenance. My
history is sketchy on this, but my undestanding is #2 started as a
translation of the Java client; again, I believe it doesn't get much

If I were you and wanted to program to a .NET model instead of WCF
model, I'd look more at the .NET binding in the forthcoming 0.8. You can
grab a release candidate from
http://people.apache.org/~robbie/qpid/0.8/RC3/. It's not a nice Windows
installer yet so you'll need to build it from source, but I think you'll
find it a closer model to what you want.

If you want to be a guinea pig for an installer for this, let me know.
