I have some follow up questions for Martin regarding that thread.

I went through zmq.h and other available information.  I believe I
understand the socket types and the kinds of queues they will support.

For the ZMQ_REP type,  it looks like a received message has to be
processed immediately and the reply has to be sent before the next
message can be read frome the Queue.

For some kinds of services, say for example that would run lengthy
database queries in the back end, wouldn't this be a bit too
I was expecting to see something where the application can 'receive' a
series of messages without having to reply immediately and would be
able to reply to each one at some point in future.

Is thers plans for such a queue functionality?

Appreciate your time.
