In theory libzmq supports your use case. You'd have to write your own ZAP
handler manualy and return your metada as part of the ZAP reply (as
specified in ZRFC27)
You cannot use zmqpp::auth for this, it's not flexible enough.

on my server.
Your "listofactions" metadata property would be available on any messages
from the matching client.
To retrieve a metadata/property from a message with zmqpp you can use:
I know this works for the "Identity" property. Unless libzmq doesn't
implement it for generic properties, it should work.
Let us know how you fare.
