Something licensed BSD would be cool too.  It always bothered me that 0MQ is lesser GPL.

I actually sort of like this idea in a way.  It would result in better maintenance for broccoli and new features.  I've always had this feeling like I'd be able to do something super awesome if I could have broccoli hold open a socket and let a Bro connect.  Right now you can't even have broccoli->broccoli because broccoli can't be the server.
