Factor in that people will wind up in the user's guide in their path to 
discovering 0MQ, and Python (Lua, Perl) can be a huge turn off for some 
people. More often than not, the ease of use of a library/utility from 
scripting environments translates to a PITA for folks working in 
C/C++/C#/Java etc. My total Python time prior to ZeroMQ is less than the 
time I've spent writing this email so far.

It's not a priority, by any means, but if you could factor into the 
design a concept of having multiple language implementations of most 
examples, and using some HTML cleverness to show only those the reader 
is interested in...
