My feeling here is that gossip protocols differ a lot from any pattern 
that is currently supported in 0MQ (pub/sub, req/rep etc.)

If you want to fix that you can design a new pattern aimed at that kind 
of thing. To do that, you should have a clear idea of what are the 
invariants of gossip protocols and how they can be mapped to 0MQ semantics.

I assume there are some very specific issues in play here, like creating 
a connection only when sending a message and closing it immediately, 
random selection of peer to pass the message to etc.
