The first thing would be to make a Haskell client library to speak AMQP 
(Advanced Message Queuing Protocol) on the wire.

It is a very open binary standard (with defined semantics!) at

I would be mildly surprised if zero people were working on this.

Once that is in place then the question of a Haskell Broker for AMQP arises. 
But I suspect that Erlang's runtime will still rule there for "production use".
