Yes, that's my idea.  We did this in OpenAMQ's WireAPI, and it allows
communications to run at full speed independently of the application
(which in this case is the language system).

Sure.  Once we have a basic daemon we could enhance it.  It could keep
the 0MQ API or something very close to it.

Martin, what do you think of this approach?
