The instructions do indeed need fixing. We are aware of that, but just
haven't found the time to do it yet.

You are the first person to ask about this :) We have thought about more 
compact encodings for messaging than present in AMQP. See, for example 
Tony's "Streamlining HTTP" post 
(http://www.lshift.net/blog/2009/02/27/streamlining-http), but we have 
no concrete plans for implementation yet.

Does the overhead really cause problems in your setup? Do you end up 
saturating the network?
