I'll chime in real quick... I am an avid Socket.IO user and I love it
because it has good fallback techniques. Also I think rabbitmq
shouldn't distribute a client library but rather just support
websockets as a protocol. I keep seeing this as being quite useful
because most of the time when I use node.js to tie socket.IO and
rabbitmq together it is just a simple pass through. :)
