[zeromq-dev] BDFL literally

You know I've always steered our community with a light touch, only
intervening in case of the few disputes we get when bad actors think they
can waltz in and impose their egos. We agree that our rules work and that
those who understand and apply them with the right mix of tolerance for
error, and brutality towards fraud, are the people I most closely cherish.
It's not fair but neither is life.

Sorry I've spent a while on this problem. A community needs someone to take
the blame and some of the credit. An honest mix of pride and respect for
others. A stubborn bastard who nods and lets you have lots of road just to
hang you with if it's needed.

And someone who can balance long term insane vision with pragmatic slow
progress, because they have already been there and now wait with patience
for the rest of us to catch up.

So without further ado I'd like to hand the stage over to my dear friend,
Mr Did You Really Add UDP Support to Libzmq In One Day Doron....  dramatic
pause... SOMECH!!

Thank you for your votes, which I entirely ignored. :)
