Thanks for the patch! Yes, let's communicate the changes in build system 
via JIRA to keep it consistent. Everyone: When you are changing the 
build system (adding/removing files etc.), please create a JIRA task to 
change it under cmake as well. Assign it to George.

One more question: Is cmake capable of creating msvc projects for .net 
(CLI) projects? (.NET extension to 0MQ is almost ready and will be added 
to the project shortly)

If that's the case, it should be possible to get rid of hand-written 
msvc project files altogether. These are really bloated (~5000 lines of 
code = 22% of current codebase) and hard to keep up to date.

With win installer package 0MQ users won't be forced to build the 
project so they won't have to bother with cmake at all. As for 0MQ 
developers, installing cmake and generating msvc project files would be 
a fair price to pay for getting rid of 5000 lines of project files IMO.
