[zeromq-dev] proxying CURVE ?

This won't work at the ZMTP level. CURVE must talk to CURVE. You could
write a proxy that does raw TCP, and extends the CURVE handshake
across from client to worker. You could also use libcurve on top of
NULL, and do end-to-end security (that was the use case for libcurve).
