As someone who was introduced to 0MQ in version 2.1, this really helps
understand some of the motivations. I now understand why 'xrep' and 'xreq'.
The separation into hop-by-hop and end-to-end and its analogy to IP and TCP
helped my understanding of the design greatly.

 The document is very clear and will help me in designing my own topologies
(and indeed, understanding that I am actually designing topologies).

Thanks for taking the time.
