But yes, right. If you think of it, if you want to communicate between 
random language X and random language Y (not even speaking of different 
OS platforms), 0MQ is often the only choice.

It seems the choice to have a C library with simple API to be wrapped by 
different languages was the right decision. It makes adapting it to 
different languages relatively simple.

If you follow RabbitMQ mailing list, you may have noticed that the 
approach based on standardised wire protocol (AMQP) makes writing 
language bindings much more complex and thus results in lower overall 
number of languages supported.
