The protocols are supposed to be documented on http://rfc.zeromq.org/
but I've not finished the job.  Steven, the answer is Yes, you should
be able to talk to a 0MQ app via regular TCP sockets, if the wire
protocols are properly documented.  Feel free to demand that
documentation from me, we've never had a request for it before.

Now my silly question: is it absolutely out of the question to port
0MQ to the microcontroller?  The library is very small.
