Since half the fun of ZeroMQ is discovering the best topologies
yourself, it would be a shame to point you in any specific direction.
What I'll say is that it's very fast to try different designs, as in
you can experiment with half a dozen in a day.  The trick is to
experiment in isolation, with mock clients and workers, using threads
in one process if possible. This lets you try different patterns and
learn how they work.
