I would say your problem boils down to the following question:

"Are there any recursive messaging patterns in 0MQ?"

Or, in a more generic way:

"Are the recursive messaging patterns a good idea at all?"

I have no real answer as for now. However, the idea of sending messages 
in (possibly infinite?) loops sound kind of scary.
