I like this idea, it would be nice to know, as you point out, which
subscription a message matched without having to do your own search.
Maybe an interesting b/w compatible change would be to add another
recv()-like method to SUB that returned a struct of the message and
also the subscription it matched.  This would keep ZMQ_SUBSCRIBE
simple and not break any existing code.
