It's not yet available at the libzmq API, only internally. I'm not
happy making the ZRE protocol depend on a specific version of ZeroMQ

The beacon isn't a problem afaics: it is trivial to get the sender
address for a beacon and we already do that. I don't see there's any
requirement for endpoints except tcp:// at the moment. So a beacon
with port number is fine.

I think we can get the socket interface address for each received
beacon, and deliver that as a 3rd frame.
