I had no problem with that, rather the confusion between message
(as in what is sent) and message (as in zmq_msg_t).

So you could say "after the zmq_recv_msg function returns
the message may contain a message" ...


Or should I say "the message isn't a message until after the function
returns" .. 


Of course different people will find different things difficult.
