[zeromq-dev] Scalability of inproc/PAIR sockets

I am interested in using ZMQ together with a lightweight thread/fiber
library to build an actor model library. My target application would
have upwards of 10,000 actors (only a handful would be actively
processing at any one instant in time).

What are people's opinions on how well inproc/PAIR sockets would scale
to upwards of 10,000 instances within a single process?
