I've spent a good amount of time setting up message-based infrastructures, so I decided to make a tool that would allow me to set up localhost friendly, network available message queues much quicker so I could try out all the things I wanted.

So here is Mess(age)Q(ueue). Something I've quickly thrown together. I will work on it later to get it more performance oriented, but right now it is good to go for smaller projects.
