[zeromq-dev] notify pattern

Hello folks,

I am new to zmq and was implementing the "basic reliable queuing" pattern to distribute work across multiple workers. The workers are intended to do a task that could take several minutes once kicked off. 

I wanted to maintain a list of tasks and workers in the queue so that if a worker has crashed/is unresponsive for an hour(or so) I can send the task to another worker. I will have the worker notify the queue once a task is complete so that the task is taken out of the queue. 

Is there a better pattern to do this. 

Thanks a lot.
