[zeromq-dev] Other poll events than in/out

I am working on the Python bindings to zmq_poll and have a few questions:

* For zmq sockets only io/out events make sense.  But what about for
other socket types.  Can zmq_poll be used to monitor other sockets for
the other events that select/poll know about?

* When working with zmq sockets, does zmq_poll know about when
complete messages are ready to be sent or received, or when the
underlying socket is ready for read/write?

* In the IO thread, does zmq call the real poll/select and manage the
tcp/tpc/etc sockets in a non-blocking manner?
