Yes, in the memory of 6502 programming. But get/set by themselves
aren't enough, there has to be an object, making it a clumsy function
name. zmq_ctx_getoption or zmq_ctx_getopt or whatever.

If peek/poke still feel too weird after a while, we can switch to
getopt/setopt. It's a simple patch.

I'm using the same nomenclature for zmq_msg_peek/poke, would send that
pull request but github ssh access is down at the moment.
