None that I'm aware of.  With my implementation I am trying to add a 
provider (SPI) layer so that other implementations could be plugged in. 
  I am not going overboard with the design of this layer, but simply 
adding what's needed as I need it.  It could grow organically as other 
implementations are added.

I'll hopefully have a 0.0.1 next week.

I am deliberately trying to avoid compile time dependencies for the code 
in the System.Messaging namespace.  E.g. the Q-Pid client libraries drag 
in around 8 different dlls.
