In 0MQ they will all be non-contended spinlocks so all you save is the
overhead of a few atomic locks per call. Any performance difference would
likely be untraceable on PGM alone, but it looks like it shouldn't be too
difficult to implement hence on the list.

The costs of memory management, checksumming and rate limiting are more
pertinent but also significantly more challenging to resolve.
