We are new to ZeroMQ and want to use it
to distribute media over wifi to phones and other devices,
potentially a very large number. 

(a) Has anyone used PGM over WIFI to
devices yet? Anyone tried it with hundreds or thousands of phones?
(b) How well does it (or should it) work?  (c) If the wifi /
electrical environment is dirty, will zeroMQ's queuing mechanisms get
in my way? (e) What other issues should I expect to have to work
around? (f) Tricks and tips?

We do not need or want 

"guaranteed delivery", as
this is a real time broadcast, missing 

audio segments should be substituted
with silence when the cannot
 be obtained in time to keep up with
the audio stream. Will we run into problems BECAUSE of message
queuing we don’t want or is there a way to get in under that layer
and avoid queues overflowing, etc.? 

Is there any chance that anyone would
want to implement Uflood, Ucast or any other protocol specifically
designed for wifi? How do we get this onto the “wish list” or
product road map? 

We may be in a position to provide a
testbed environment for large-scale wifi testing if someone else
wants to develop the code! Who should we be talking to? Anyone
interested in being the lead archtect or developer if we can support
