i care about monitoring.

and while i have stated here repeatedly that it is a significant pain in the arse that
zeromq won't give me any idea of teh queue length (and please, we udnerstand
all about the necessary imprecisions involved -- there is no earthly reason
why an estimate couldn't be provided!), i drank the kool-aid and did app-level monitoring
and have honestly never looked back.
i 'm sure it has a performance impact, but it seems insignificant compared to all the other
work going on.
i do the monitoring in perhaps an odd way, which i could talk about separately,
but still flushing messages through a quick recv/send loop seems effcicient to me.
