[zeromq-dev] Issues with large numbers of clients

The "explicit connect" is really just a request to connect, which
happens asynchronously when the endpoint is reachable. I assume, but
this isn't documented and I've not tested how libzmq handles it, that
each physical connection gets a new identity inside the ROUTER socket
unless the client set an explicit identity.
