I understand that tunneling STOMP over websockets is cool,
but I can't imagine a good use case for that.

For example, inside a datacentre I'd probably use just raw Stomp.
I would be quite reluctant to expose Stomp/websockets to users
over the internet, because of security concerns - the users will
effectively gain almost full control of the server (via stomp protocol).

Do you have a specific use case in mind?
