the actor package seems unmaintained and probably doesn't fit your needs. If

AMQP is probably easier to get started with, but it requires you to set up a
dedicated broker, which (if you have very high throughput) might become a
bottleneck. ZeroMQ, on the other hand, allows for a more decentralized
