[zeromq-dev] load balance vs data distribution

I am doing some investigation of zeromq v2 and I am curious where the
concept of load balancing and data distribution went.  I'm sure I'm
simply not looking in the right place.  I was able to get a basic
pub-sub (chat) working with zmq_forwarder, but it seems this is an
example of data distribution (all display procs get chat messages).  I
tried the man pages of zmq_forwarder but there doesn't seem to be
anything there (empty man page structure is all).  Is there a way to
specify load-balancing in the config.xml file used by the
zmq_forwarder?  Or is load balancing accomplished is some other way?

Are there any more examples for v2.0 available?  More specifically,
has anybody migrated the butterfly example to v2.0?

Thanks in advance,
