I've used ActiveMQ with a Perl STOMP client in the past. Works well, but at
the time ActiveMQ was leaking memory quite a bit, I don't know if it's still
the case now.

The RabbitMQ site doesn't feature examples in Perl, but I've recently played
with Net::RabbitMQ, and it seems to do the job alright.
