You seem annoyed that ZeroMQ somehow does not live up to your
expectations. Yet the patterns which ZeroMQ enables are well
documented, and the material that explains how to build on top is
vast, and translated into dozens of programming languages.

I've no strong opinion on this, but you might reflect on what it looks
like to others. You find a free library, made by others over years at
their expense. You do not read the available material (or you skim
it). You ask for, and get expert advice, for free. Then you complain
that the tool doesn't fit your personal use case as though the
universe was designed for you?

Steffen, seriously? Learn it, use it, and if you can improve it, send
us a patch.
