I'm not familiar with the build system, and only minimally familiar with
zmq, so ignore me if I'm totally off base.

The way I understand how zmq subscription sockets work is that
clients will miss notifications if they get disconnected for whatever
reason. So a mechanisim should be in place to replay notifications
that the client may have missed. Maybe this is the non-reliability
you're experiencing with IRC as well?
