I'm not yet sure whether the syntax scales to N processes but it's
worth exploring. Another option for device configuration is what Zed
Shaw did for Mongrel2, i.e. a sqlite database. It sounds weird but
lets one easily modify the configuration on the fly (e.g.
enable/disable logging) etc. Maybe for later...

Indeed. I keep thinking of 'address' in zmq_connect but it's an
endpoint of course.

Well, how would you want to edit and maintain these?

Thanks for catching that.
Would you re-post your comments to the talk page so we don't lose them? Thanks.
