[zeromq-dev] ZeroMQ background threads

I'm using ZeroMQ in an applications with several threads (up to 40).
I noticed that in the "master" branch of ZeroMQ the background threads
it creates are given a name. That's VERY useful, thanks!

However my question is: my application sets the affinity and the
priority of all threads it creates explicitly. Of course it  cannot
set the affinity/priority of ZMQ background threads.
Is it possible to add an API to get the pthread_t (on Linux) or the
generic thread handle (platform-dependent) associated with the ZMQ
background threads?

In that way my application would be able to set affinity and increase
priority also of ZMQ background threads...
