I tend to think of (and use) ZeroMQ more of as a way to link
applications together in a brokerless topology and still get a lot of
the benefits of messaging. . My intention in drawing in the comparison
with ZMQ is to highlight that I think ZMQ does it right for those use

(I realize using ZMQ you can make one of your apps a broker and bake
in your own persistence)

I have a lot of respect for ZMQ.
