[zeromq-dev] malamute - unsubscribe from stream like raw pub/sub sockets

What about the "CANCEL" command in the stream API? There's a block of code in the server that unsubscribes when a client is destroyed. Can't that command be called separately? Other than in the destructor? 

What steps do you take before extending it? I've already forked it on my local machine and modified the xml of client, server, and proto such that a remove_consumer works. 

I'm new to the development process of the zeromq project, though I find the code generation scripts awesome and useful!

>> In malamute, the stream pattern is extremely useful for me. I'd like to have each client provide different "events" through the stream, and then each client can subscribe to specific events from different clients' streams. But this approach needs to be more dynamic and requires unsubscribing from a pattern in a stream, or reversing a mlm_set_consumer command.
