[zeromq-dev] Inproc connection guide

Hi all,

Reading the zeromq guide, I'm seeing the following statement regarding
the inproc transport protocol:

"the server must issue a bind before any client issues a connect"

However, I'm reading the code and I see that there actually is support
for pending connections. From the looks of it, a client can issue a
connect and, if the server has not issued a bind yet, it "adds itself"
to a "pending_connections" structure which will be read once the server
binds the socket.

So, my question is, is the above statement outdated, or am I reading the
code incorrectly?
