I guess your concerns about stability are confusing.  The main issues are bugs within the ZeroMQ source code:
https://zeromq.jira.com/browse/LIBZMQ-478
https://zeromq.jira.com/browse/LIBZMQ-496

The LIBZMQ-496 was fixed in 3.2.3 while LIBZMQ-478 remains unresolved.  I see no reason to doubt the stability of erlzmq2, since these errors are handled in a way that causes no instability within the Erlang VM.  The erlzmq2 is using a separate thread, so it doesn't have the Erlang scheduler lock-up issue that remains a problem for all long-running NIF/BIF functions.

So, what instability are you referring to?
