> This is my first post to this list since I only started working with it last week. So far I have to say it is mind-blowing! Thank you for this!

Glad you like it!

> Currently I am using the Python binding and everything works quite nicely so far! When I read about Tornado's eventloop I liked it even more. Now my question: is there some way to use zmq with the 'original' eventloop? Or the other way round? Or should I simply start two different threads for the two eventloops?

The ioloop.py in zmq.eventloop is a full replacement for the ioloop.py
in tornado that adds support for zmq sockets..  You just want one of
these and to use both tcp and zmq sockets you will have to use
zmq.eventloop.ioloop.  But, once you start that event loop, you should
just be able to use the rest of tornado just like normal.  Let us know
if you have problems.  We should probably add an example to pyzmq that
shows how to do this.

Let us know how it goes...
