A third piece is required for the chat example:

* You need to run the forwarder device on port 5555 that comes with
0MQ.  If you look at the code in display.py/prompt.py connect to port
5555.  The forwarder is the one that binds and listens on 5555


* You can change display.py to bind rather than connect on port 5555.
This is sufficient for a single user chat demo.

Let me know if you run into trouble.  One of the things on our todo
list is to build a simple chat forwarder in python that we can ship in
the examples/chat directory to it is a self contained example.

For now ctrl-\ should work.
