Actually, carrot is not a client on its own. It's more a high-level  
framework to make messaging easier in python (especially Django).

Right now it's using py-amqlib as the backend, I chose it because it  
was the easiest for me to use (I don't have any experience using  
twisted). I've been thinking about a txAMQP backend for carrot too.  
Any help is appreciated.

Performance is important to me, but I doubt the sending/receiving  
messages part will be the bottleneck for the project I'm working on  
now. I'm using the multiprocessing module new to Python 2.6  
(backported to 2.5) to process the jobs concurrently, and it's working  
great so far! Spread over two machines and ten concurrent processes,  
the work I'm doing takes 8 seconds, compared to the 57 seconds it did  
before when using a single process without messaging.

Thanks a lot for RabbitMQ by the way, although I'm pretty new
to this, I'm really excited!
