The reason for matching existing names is familiarity. In fact you'd
use ZMQ_RCVTIMEO / ZMQ_SNDTIMEO (I guess) and make the semantics work
the right way, whatever the OS.

Also, I'd recommend to just use an int value, for simplicity...

You're not depending on the OS for the timeout functionality, are you?
