Sending messages to PUB is a lot faster than receiving from SUB
according to that post, not surprising since PUB will drop messages
when the network connection can't keep up.

But then it would be interesting how many messages where dropped. And
not just for the ZeroMQ case. Or do the same test with a non-dropping
socket type.

Measuring how fast zmq (or other) can loose data is not realy
interesting I think.
