[zeromq-dev] Wrong python example in guide

Hello all,

I noticed a problem in the following python example

In fact, by looking at the C example, I see that the first send (the one
that signals the start of the batch) is done directly to the sink and
not to the workers (which makes sense), while in the python example it
is sent to the workers (which doesn't quite make sense).

I know it's just a minor oversight but it might confuse python
developers that are approaching zeromq (such as me) a bit. Okay, it did
confuse _me_ a bit, but I'm expecting others might be as well.

A simple patch might be http://pastebin.com/GYzRcENc

In addition, the first examples use "context.Socket" instead of the
correct (as of pyzmq 2.1.9) "context.socket".
