Yeah, I think that is true, though each peer could run a single  PULL
socket.  I think you would be using them for one shots a lot though, the
calling end would likely be constructing a new socket, pushing a message and
going away. I guess the benefit of 0MQ would be the usual scale out argument
- based purely on DSN you could push messages inproc, ipc or tcp easily.

That said, I also wouldn't be surprised if in working out the details it
didn't work out easier to use PUB/SUB sockets - pretty much the same setup
as before but with the ability to signal multiple other actors with a bit
more ease on the calling side.
