[zeromq-dev] FIX to 0mq bridge

I helped building a FIX 4.x compliant engine before and can help with some
input ( we used the QuickFix specs / tests to ensure initial compliance as
it covers a large set of edge cases in the FIX protocol ). I'd definitely
recommend either parsing very lightweight / specific OR prefer the QuickFix
parser and infer message semantics from that. If you're only interested in
Market Data, a lightweight parser for the raw result messages could work
best. Also note that formats differ depending on the type of data
subscription - snapshot (
http://www.onixs.biz/fix-dictionary/4.4/msgType_W_87.html ) VS incremental
( http://www.onixs.biz/fix-dictionary/4.4/msgType_X_88.html ). A snapshot
can be translated into incremental updates in the device etc.

I'm not sure of the 5.x implementation - need to catch up. Just some
