Thanks, I had already spotted this and asked some questions on it :)
(see e.g. your answer here

I guess I'll have to try it out a bit.

As of now I'm still tossing around ideas of to what use ZeroMQ could be put
wrt "reliable" messaging. Therefore my try for a definition of what that
actually means (to me).

I'm getting the feeling that a centralized ZeroMQ-based broker does not
too much appeal (to me, again), for reasons of readily available solutions
with years of development efforts in their broker codebase. Not
but I regard this as an implementation detail, apart from the nearly
platform/language support of ZeroMQ, maybe.
