There is a fairly stable, just not-yet-official branch of RabbitMQ that 
supports AMQP 0-9-1.  See https://dev.rabbitmq.com/wiki/Amqp091

You might also look at the Rabbit JSON RPC adapter, though this may 
suffer from the same "textiness" that the STOMP adapter does.

A Silverlight client would be great to see!  How much work do you think 
this involves, and what are the main obstacles -- are there classes that 
substitute for those that are missing?
