[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ and Websockets

I'd be very interested in this.  I haven't looked too much into it, so
I don't know what existing solutions exist.  This is what I'd like
I don't need for the browser to create any queues/exchanges/bindings
so those calls are not important to me.  This should be done server
side (at least to me.)
I'd like to use it in a very text/json oriented way.  Here's how I'd
like to publish a message:

var message = new Object();
message.command = "publish";
message.queue = "myqueue";
message.exchange = "myexchange";
message.key = "mybindkey";
message.body = "hello world";

var message_json = JSON.stringify(message);

var ws = new WebSocket("ws://");


var subscribe = new Object();
subscribe.command = "consume";
subscribe.queue = ...


//wait for reply from server...
ws.onopen = function(event)
  //handle message or error here..

I don't need STOMP support, the websocket plugin should just require a
port for communication and delegate the commands to rabbitmq.
