REQ/XREP are a superset, I want to toss the finite state machine and  
end up with steerable streams within the ØMQ framework,  something  
like TCP (bind, connect, accept, etc.) but without all the muss and  

I've got a couple of things in mind, such as attaching logging or  
command consoles, layering source-filtering on it for authenticated  
pub/sub over TCP, etc.
