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.
