[zeromq-dev] multiprocessing + testing with pyzmq

The issue here, it seems, is timing.  The children would like to communicate
as quickly as is possible, and then exit as soon as is possible.  I'm
finding that the parent process loses messages because the children exit too
quickly.  How might I resolve that problem?  I would like to avoid using

I tried using a child req > parent reply pattern to force the children to
wait to exit until all the messages are processed, but that might not be the
best solution. I've attached a copy of my test script that doesn't work yet.

Let me know what you think.
