I agree wholeheartedly. I think the timing functions should stay and be
supported portably across platforms.

There is/was also a zmq_sleep() function in there. Will it be kept?
Should it?

At some point I also proposed adding a zmq_uuid() generation function,
but it was decided it was beyond 0MQ's scope. Perhaps we could come up
with clear cut criteria for what kinds of functions belong in 0MQ.

Best regards.
