Hi Erich,

Thanks for the patch! However, to make it possible to merge it to the 
mainline you have to state that the patch is licensed under MIT license. 
It is kind of annoying but as 0mq is primarily focused on financial 
services sector, we need clear licensing policy.

We'll going to support existing functionality in the future. As for 
adding new features it depends on requirements from our customers. 
Still, if you are missing something, feel free to express your interest 
on the mailing list.
