It is mentioned in the blog and other places, such that Aeron can sit
side-by-side with PGM underneath ZeroMQ.  There are a lot of links at the
end of the HighScalability.com article, Todd Montgomery chimes in a lot
with the references.

But I do agree with their design that the core architectural piece is a
reliable log, but I am perplexed how Aeron supports congestion control but
they are only going to implement back pressure.  The major problem with PGM
is lack of a congestion control mechanism that scales above 10k/s, the
reliability can certainly be improved alongside the memory usage with the
log design from Aeron but I am still left wanting more.
