[zeromq-dev] Poll about linger and termination behaviour!

I think of the new default LINGER behavior as more of a bugfix than
anything else, so my vote is to keep -1.

Many of my use cases are short scripts of the form:

send some messages

For the default behavior to be that this won't work without setting a
flag doesn't seem great to me, but maybe my use cases are unusual.

I do certainly appreciate backwards compatibility, so maybe default to
0 really is a better decision at this point.

As for zmq_wait, this would be a super useful feature to add, and
critical for zero-copy sends of data that's in use (we currently use a
custom free-function to provide this ourselves).  Mark this as high on
my wishlist for 2.2.
