I too have been looking closely at integrating ActiveMQ.  It seams like
an excellent approach to solving cluster problems.  I really like Noel's
idea for separating out the protocol handlers too.

If performance is an issue, the ActiveMQ project already has some JMeter
performance tests, http://activemq.codehaus.org/JMeter+Performance
+Tests.  It should be a fairly straight forward process to see how
ActiveMQ compares to James' existing solution.
