So far I haven't found much more in the InteractiveClass to help me
putting zeromq and cliff together actually:

class cliff.interactive.InteractiveApp(parent_app, command_manager,
stdin, stdout)

it still takes a stdin and stdout objects, so it expects files..
Instead of making a zeromq object behave like a file we could make it
write and read from a file which is written and read by different
processes, could that be a solution?
