I think it would be cool to have messages stored in K/V stores like Riak, Couch, or Mongo and be able to subscribe to queues based on queries (like SQL views) which is something I've had on my mind recently. I dug into the core RabbitMQ code the other day to see how feasible this would be and it looks reasonably straightforward. I've been using Riak a lot lately, so I'd likely start with that and the protobuff client.

What about metadata? I think that's all stored in mnesia now, right? How hard would it be to keep that data in the same storage backend?
