The intent was to either upgrade or subsume it.

ZMQ_AFFINITY only supports 32 or 64 processors (depending on word size, I think).

The idea is to either change it or add another tag name that works with an arbitrarily
long array. I already pointed out the 64 processor limit, which is inappropriately
small even for todays larger systems, and tomorrow your phone will probably
have 4096 cores.. :)
