[zeromq-dev] [zmqpp] Identity blob

I notice that the only valid data type for the identity socket option is a
string. In libzmq, my understanding is that identity is a binary blob. What
if I want to use an integer for identity, or a UUID? I can, of course,
convert these types to strings, but this isn't necessarily the best network
encoding.

Opinions: Should other types be usable in zmqpp for the identity socket
option?
