Hi all,

In case anybody is interested in a rabbitmq-based reverse proxy for rails, I put one 
together at http://github.com/somic/rabbitbal. The README file explains possible benefits 
of using AMQP instead of raw HTTP in proxy scenarios as I see them. This is proof of 
concept, not thoroughly tested under load.

Other Ruby web frameworks can be trivially plugged in if they have support for Rack. 
Frameworks in other languages can be used with this approach as well, but somewhat more 
effort might be required - it's still very doable.

Rabbitbal is in large part based on Nanite, a project that was mentioned on this list 
before (see http://lists.rabbitmq.com/pipermail/rabbitmq-discuss/2008-October/002100.html)
