Get websockets working in Erlang first; then get websockets working as a
RabbitMQ plugin generally; then munge rabbitmq-stomp to make use of the
websocket support you've built (if it's present). Each of those steps will be
interesting and valuable, is my guess :-)

If you get one or two steps in, it'd be fun to see if
http://github.com/tonyg/erlang-rfc4627 could be updated to speak JSON-RPC over
websockets (perhaps even with new-fangled JSON-RPC notifications!). (Actually
that reminds me it'd be cool to have JSON-RPC run over raw TCP, too.)

Note to get STOMP to run at all with the current default checkouts you'll need
the rabbitmq-stomp patch I sent through the other day, currently residing in hg
on branch bug23231 and not yet merged into default (ping, mikeb! ;-) ).
