Yes switching transport is very interesting. But it's unclear
what problem do they solve. Text says there are too many context
switches and there are central deamon. Daemon can be turned
into coordinator instead proxy like dbus. But context switches
are still there (and even more as I expect) since zeromq does
io in separate thread.
