This lines up nicely with your other thread, about RESTful access to
AMQP. Creating a full AMQP connection for every PHP script invocation
seems very heavy - it's not only a full TCP connection, but it's several
roundtrips between the client and broker. Perhaps a lighter RESTful
HTTP-to-AMQP portal would work better: PHP scripts would both submit and
retrieve messages via AMQP-over-HTTP...
I'll have to dig out my sketchy notes on what a good AMQP-over-HTTP
would look like.
