It takes around six months to make a high-performance AMQP client
stack. Large vendors broke interoperability with their own bizarre
versions of AMQP. AMQP/1.0 is so complex that the plan is to create a
single C binding and then wrap it in various languages. Somehow it
didn't quite work as planned...

Because NYSE runs this on 29West, as far as I know.
AMQP fails as a scalable pub-sub standard, it's centralized and slow
and complex. 0MQ's protocol would be rather better but it's not
So initiatives like OpenMAMA are a great way to push demand for
large-scale messaging and eventually people will implement more and
more pieces using 0MQ.
