Hi Goswin,
There is a real life example of a project using pyzmq + zap protocol.

I used the unit test of pyzmq to learn how to use it. I can confirm they 
are the best documentation so far :)

The implementation of pseud still suffers by the issue raised by 
https://github.com/zeromq/libzmq/issues/802. So it does not offer yet 
all feature it promises, but at least encryption works.
Reliable authentication will come later once #802 is fixed.
