Hi Andrzej,

Thanks for this PDF, it's really interesting.

I'm curious to know your opinion of the work we're doing on the wire
protocol (ZMTP), which is now in v3.0 in draft stage
(rfc.zeromq.org/spec:23). The goal is to ensure that different
implementations can talk together safely, over a long timeframe.

The result - ZMQ fits perfectly in our environment, better than anything else. For details on the requirements* and why ZMQ is better for us than anything else with have tried see the paper.
