[zeromq-dev] multipart message receiving does not work with C++

Hi Martin,
Indeed this would be a solution, and Jashua has kindly provided a link
for a way to do this. I'm using protocol buffers in a complicated
wrapper scenario, and in general I'd like to get multipart messaging
up and running, since it feels as if it will offer more flexibility.
Given my current setup, multipart messages is method that offers
shorter time to functionality required.

Any reason I should avoid multipart messages? Performance? Stability?
