I am not sure what you are asking here. You can send/recv message over ZeroMQ
sockets from coroutines, but lua-zmq will not yield the coroutine when the
socket blocks. You could wrap zmq sockets to make the send/recv call yield
the calling coroutine, then use a scheduler to resume the coroutine when the
socket is readable/writable (like what Copas  does for TCP sockets).
Someone could add support for zmq sockets to Copas, so coroutines could
block/yield on tcp/zmq sockets. But this is not something that I have time or
the need to do. I can give pointers to anyone that wants to try this.
