Well, the overall semantics are file based, i.e. objects will be much
larger than memory size.

A use case for this project would be video streaming on a large scale,
where video is being produced by several hundred/thousand nodes at one
side, and consumed by several thousand/million at the other, but not
necessarily in realtime. I.e. if everything is persisted to disk, and
indexed, one can ask for archival or recent video using the same
semantics as asking for live video.

This is the broad idea, but before jumping in with 0MQ, we were
wondering if anyone had seen similar capabilities in other products.
