[Mono-list] Unable to start WCF host with 1 service endpoint

WCF services on mono do not work so well.  Even if you can get them to
function, I've found the implementation does not perform very well.  If you
get away from HTTP bindings, things get worse, and I'm not sure at all
about the RabbitMQ bindings.

I use RabbitMQ heavily under mono and the regular driver works very well.
 Can you get away from WCF for this?

Also, if you're building services in mono, or want a nice framework that is
fully supported on both mono and .NET, I highly recommend using
ServiceStack (http://ServiceStack.net). It performs quite well on both mono
and .NET, and most people find the design approach to be quite refreshing.
 I certainly do.
