[zeromq-dev] Stateless service protocols

A "stateless" protocol would be one where your message has to contain all
the information needed to handle it, so that the server contains no state.
It sounds like a very large constraint. I work on a large load-balanced set
of microservices, and they're all stateful, using shared state via a
postgres database, so it doesn't matter which service instance my requests
go to, since all of them contain the correct state.

What is it that you are trying to do?
