Are we still aiming for some sort of consistency between the different OO
scripting language bindings or not? If we are, then we should probably
coordinate things between Python, Ruby and Java so that they don't diverge
where practical.

(Obviously if a language binding does something in a way specific to
language X then so be it.  But the overall model should be the same
otherwise they're no longer bindings to the 0MQ API but separate APIs which
will hurt adoption.)
