I know RC/beta terminology is just semantics, but are we really going
straight to stable with no betas with a half-dozen relatively untested new

It is very difficult to decide when, as a bindings maintainer, I should
start looking to add support for new features, as they have been added and
removed so frequently from libzmq.

What commitment are you making with a libzmq-3.2.x stable release with
regard to these new features?

For instance, pyzmq ships its own implementation of zmq_device, because all
of the 3.0/3.1/4.0 betas had removed it, but since the current state of
3.2.x means there will have been zero stable lbzmq releases without
zmq_device, I should remove this code from pyzmq altogether.

I used to pretty aggressively support changes in 3.0-dev and even Martin's
4.0 experiment branch, but that proved a huge waste of effort, and I regret
trying to support new features of libzmq-dev.  So from now on, I don't plan
to add pyzmq support for any new features until they are present in a
finished stable release.
