Shahbaz, what's actually involved in making a RTD server?  Can you
provide more details about what you wrote and what it needs in terms
of messaging?

0MQ does not run on AMQP, it uses a much simpler, and faster protocol.
 In many respects 0MQ *is* the API since it's a peer-to-peer model,
where all the intelligence sits in the client API.  It can also be
used to make brokers but they are then just a kind of application.

So there's no way in 0MQ to reuse the APIs from RabbitMQ or OpenAMQ,
but the other way around could work nicely - 0MQ as a high-speed
extension for those APIs.
