Hi Paul,

Sounds great. From a non-zmq perspective, are you thinking along the
lines of something very simple, like Graphite or RRD, and [name value
timestamp] tuples?

I favor simple, text-oriented solutions.

The only thing I've done roughly along these lines was small.
Subscribers containing DTrace-like aggregator funcs parsed messages
for keys (e.g. location, device, timestamp) and, in turn, published
aggregated values like the tuples above. It wasn't designed to be
generic, though, as it was an early foray into zmq for me.

Not sure how much help I would be, but I'd like to at least listen in
on the conversation.
