Ha, that's great :-) To my knowledge, you are the first person other
than me to try using the library, so please get in touch the moment you
have trouble with it. I'm keen to make it useful.

Areas where it's weak at the moment are the standard AMQP bugbears:
multi-channel support, particularly around the error/shutdown-handling
protocols, and managing the transition between synchronous and
asynchronous operations. Also, I don't know what it'll be like on Pharo,
as I developed it on Squeak 3.9...
