[zeromq-dev] [Midly OT] Seeking advice on generic message definition for abstract classes

Hello all.

Recently I've been moving from C to C++ and I'd really like to exploit 
the capabilities of this language.
One of the scenario I've been thinking about is a ZMQ generic class able 
to do all the work.

Generally speaking abstracting from the socket and context creation is 
easy: you just need to tell the constructor what kind of socket you 
want, and where you want it.
What would be much more useful and powerful (and complex) would be to 
design a way to pass message syntax in an abstract form, so you can add 
as many messages you want to the class.

That way a sender subclass would create as many sending hooks as message 
types, while a receiver class would create as many callbacks as message 
I think this would be a nice design, thus I'm asking here for advices 
and ideas about such an implementation.

Thank you
