[zeromq-dev] gossip protocol

I'm trying to understand the operation of the gossip capability in CZMQ. I
think I understand the way it distributes key/value pairs to peers that
connected to it and that it connected to. However, I don't understand how a
gossip node actually finds another node. The tests seem to hard code the
connection address to a remote peer.

Is the gossip node discovery problem not part of the gossip implementation?
Is it assumed that one would use something like the zbeacon for discovery
and then use gossip to establish a consistent configuration state?
