Kestrel is a port of Blaine Cook's "starling" message queue system from ruby to scala: http://rubyforge.org/projects/starling/
Starling is a powerful but simple messaging server that enables reliable distributed queuing with an absolutely minimal overhead. It speaks the MemCache protocol for maximum cross-platform compatibility. Any language that speaks MemCache can take advantage of Starling's queue facilities.
