[rabbitmq-discuss] does native web xmpp plugin in rabbitmq makes sense?

Let me have a stab at this.  Others may have more useful comments.

The main benefit of using RabbitMQ in these cases is twofold:

1. You want to do pubsub and/or queueing, perhaps "at scale"

2. You want to make use of a RabbitMQ client (or clients) for an
'integration scenario'.

For example you may wish to combine both 1 and 2 to scale up your web
or IM server by using queues to decouple user requests, from back end
services that fulfil them, and then gather the results of the work on
another queue before returning aggregate results to the user.

Does this help?
