Few days ago I asked on IRC how to receive notifications about incoming transactions and was pointed out that it's possible to do via freshly added 0MQ protocol.

Looking through the PR I didn't find much and as far and while documentation is being prepared I want to ask what is most effective strategy to receive change of balance notifications?

With latest monero-wallet-rpc you can have an application run on each incoming tx to the wallet.

From the --help:

  --tx-notify arg         Run a program for each new incoming 
                          transaction, '%s' will be replaced by 
                          the transaction hash

Another simple solution is polling incoming_transfers.
