I probably don't have the requisite expertise to do much other than see if
I can get this plugin to compile.  Or maybe see if I can forward port the
zeromq plugin that was "backported" or something.  Might be saner to try to
do this outside of the collectd tree?  This does seem like a nice fit for
zeromq, so I'm hoping I can make this work -- even if this model is only
deployed selectively for places where we need to avoid UDP.

shot.  I've got a little experience w/ AMQP brokers, so that shouldn't be
too bad.  Thanks for the tip.

This also sounds great.  I'll keep a lookout for this plugin in the future
