I would like to propose another point, for your consideration.

I don't know that it is a good idea to marry 0mq to a threading library 
(even if it is a platform foundation like pthreads), as this might make 
adoption hard for folks that need to in other threading environments, 
such as TBB or openmp, for example.

After thinking about it, I believe a much more germane place for it 
would be in the language binding libs such as czmq. I other words I 
think that thread safety is an application level concern.

Also, if my app is using already libzmq in a thread safe way, why should 
I pay for all this locking and unlocking?
