I second Steve; this is something that is best inside of ZMQ as ZMQ really knows when it is about to send a message out. 

Killing the messages in the transmit window is EXACTLY what I was thinking about!  Steve, would this be easy to implement in OpenPGM?  I'm willing to look at this, but since I don't know the codebase, I'm not sure where to start.
