interconnecting dbus and activemq

We're looking for a new interprocess communication mecanism for the 
applications we develop on Linux (today we use a mix of techniques from 
UNIX IPC to sockets and pipes)

Dbus is a good candidate for us, because it is available from the Qt API 
we're working with. We're also considering ActiveMQ for the access to 
application servers it brings.

Could you help us make up our mind :
- isn't ActiveMQ a bit heavyweight for local IPC communication (99% of 
our current needs) ?
- how does interconnectiong dbus and activemq seem to you ?

Thank you for your help
