Yes, quite a few actually for embedded systems.  There are quite a few
high speed rs422/485 serial interfaces still being developed.  The
primary reason for doing this is that I already have to define a
framing and messaging protocol, and resultant code, to interface with
those devices, so I'd rather just reuse the zmq protocol and pull
those into the fold so I can interface with them directly through and
get all the zmq benefits.
