Ok, couldn't help myself and just committed the following changes. Any
comments (and complaints) are welcome.

Moved all files to the org.zeromq namespace.

Created a global namespace called ZMQ, which contains all Java classes
(Context, Socket, Poller).

Added new ways to build objects (although the constructors are still

  ZMQ.Context c = ZMQ.context(1, 1, ZMQ.POLL);
  ZMQ.Socket s = c.socket(ZMQ.PUB);
  ZMQ.Poller p = c.poller(3);
