In our own two-process, Qt-based python terminal, we simply connected to the 
signal the TCP socket class emits when the connection closed.  AFAIK that's 
the standard approach for TCP/IP-based IPC with daemons (e.g. I recall 
KDE/DCOP etc. do that), and if 0mq really is the superior solution nowadays,
I hope it offers the same failsafe detection of a lost/closed connection.
