Regardless of whether the system uses AMQP, I am a fan of AMQP's
flexible routing model. Please don't build a service that lacks fanout
and other non-1:1 distribution patterns. Non-1:1 routing is useful for
web cache invalidation and other cluster management.

If the queue service is only 1:1, we'll still end up running RabbitMQ
for our own needs.
