BTW, if you start on a Go implementation it'd be interesting and
useful to expand the protocol spec with detail as you discover you
need it. You can always send me raw material and I'll rework that into
the spec. Note that there is almost a per-socket type protocol on top
of the wire protocol (with overlap, e.g. DEALER = PUSH+PULL).
