I'm only interested in the pure erlang solution. NIFs worry me. They break
the guarantees, they muck
up the scheduler and so on. They should only be used when you've tried very
very very vary hard
not to use them.

In the problem I want to solve I don't expect communication to be a
bottleneck.

I'd like a 100% correct Erlang reference implementation of 0MQ. This (if
done) might have the interesting
side effect that it could be used (say with quick check)  test the
C-implementations of 0MQ.

Cheers
