I could try to do so but I see two ways to do it:

1 - Add a new socket option like ZMQ_DISABLE_RECONNECT
Cons: There are already quite a few socket options. I am not sure adding 
a new one is the best solution

2 - Use the value 0 for the already existing ZMQ_RECONNECT_IVL
Cons: Could break some compatibility for those already using the value 0 
to get ultra fast reconnection.
Pro: Simple

Which option is the best one?

Thank's for your answers
