I am using ZeroMQ.
But, without knowing what is that you want to do with Message Queues, it is
difficult to argue for or against ZMQ/AMQP.

ZeroMQ API is very  simple and zeromq itself is trivial to setup
(No erlang dependency like RabbitMQ etc.,
it can be installed with standard ./configure && make && make install ).
Why don't you try a scaled downprototype of your app and share the findings.

I could not have used other MQs like RabbitMQ because of hardware limitations.
I'm using ZMQ (XREQ/XREP) to queue up read/write message to a hardware device.
