qpid is an outstanding project, well run with high quality code. I
have had nothing but positive experiences, with one significant
exception, not related to qpid itself...

qpid has quite a few external dependencies and we've had a couple of
breakages from routine upgrades. We've been able to work around them,
but rabbitmq as an OTP application sits in a well known VM and
application architecture and I expect that to offer greater stability
across upgrades.

We also may be introducing more Erlang into out environment.

Basically, consolidation and simplification of core technology.
