Will subscription forwarding be optional?  Or controllable to a certain point 
within the chain?  eg. a socket option that says don't forward subscriptions. 
Or perhaps better yet, a socket option that says do forward subscriptions (as 
that way uni-directional transports still work by default, as I'm assuming they 
no longer will otherwise?).

Back to the point, sometimes publishers are fairly poor folk, simply sending to 
a central broker who is much more capable at handling many connections and doing 

That said, I've been waiting for this. Thanks :)
