Hey Al,
I didn't think to search for RabbitMQ, just AMQP. >.<

I've just been having a play with Net::RabbitMQ today, and am not 
getting a great feeling about it. The documentation is, at best, sparse, 
and in places simply incomplete.

It also seems to be missing any kind of 'wait for message' functionality.
ie. As far as I can tell, you need to do a busy-loop on get, which'll 
spin your CPU at 100% until a message comes in. Not ideal :/

I'm filing a bug with the author about that now - I think they need to 
add a method to expose amqp_simple_wait_frame() from the underlying C
