Gladly, done.

That is a very good question that I don't know if I can answer. I figured the problem it was solving essentially boiled down to "no global variables". Where is there an opportunity for undesirable interaction?

> A side issue: Wouldn't it make sense for you clrzmq, clrzmq2, NZMQ and Interop guys to at least start working on integration of all the projects? I mean, writing the code is easy, maintaining it and fixing the bugs is hard. If the projects are integrated into a single one you could support four time more features, fix four time more bug, make the whole binding four times more stable. Aside of that, having a community is much more fun than working alone :)

I'd be up for it. How active is clrzmq2? NZMQ seems to have stalled 3-4 months ago.
