I have just looked at API docs for Scala's actors. Looks like they have
moved on quite a bit since I last checked them out and have become much
more Erlang-like. Has anybody investigated hooking them into an Erlang
system directly, via Erlang's Jinterface?

This would only give you AMQP interop via a rather indirect route,
i.e. by invoking RabbitMQ's Erlang API, which Ben Hood has been working
on; see mailing list archives. So it is no substitute for an AMQP
binding along the lines I suggested. It would be an interesting project
though, providing seamless interop between Erlang processes and Scala
