Perhaps not.

Indeed. This was a replacement for the external device applications.

Note that libzmq does include zmq_device(), we put it back in since
people wanted it back and there was really no valid reason for
removing it in the first place.

It would be useful IMO to clean-up zmq_device(), add the monitor
socket, and remove the device type which was never really needed.
