[zeromq-dev] Client-side web applications with ZeroMQ

There's NullMQ, although I'm not sure of its status:

In my opinion, all a web application really needs is request/response 
and pubsub, and you already have request/response in the form of HTTP. 
So, the only thing missing is a one-way (server->client) publish 
mechanism, and there are a number of ways to do that (Socket.io rooms, 
Faye, Pushpin, etc).

Chaining socket.io's rooms stuff to a zeromq XSUB socket might be a nice 
afternoon project for you. :)
