It could still be simpler to create larger architectures, yes.  You'll
see various ideas for simplifying parts of the architecture here:

Matt's reactor pattern (and Chuck's reactor for Ruby at
http://www.zeromq.org/docs:projects#toc2) look like the way to build
the plumbing.

It's unclear whether such functionality can be moved into the 0MQ core
and be accessible via a BSD socket API, or will remain in higher

I like Matt's approach of starting with simple stable endpoints, and
scaling via more sophisticated plumbing, and will use that approach in
the user guide.
