Well, we get that even today. The problem is that toy languages don't 
implement real concurrency so that they can get stuck when interacting 
with 0MQ... In any case offering 0MQ sockets as file descriptors would 
allow for integration of 0MQ with products that use hard-wired file 
descriptor event loop in it's core.
