OK, go for it.  The patch will just make it work fully with both 2.0.7
and 2.0.8.  but without the patch it still mostly works.  There are
only 2 things that are affected:

* The clean shutdown.
* A subtle pyzmq bug that we have to work around in 2.0.7.

I would go ahead and merge and ping me.  I will  work from trunk.
