BTW, don't forget to add a function which returns the version of the
ZMQ library. That gives the bindings the chance to check whether they
are using the right version. At least for the Common Lisp bindings
this is important, because no code is compiled against the header
files. If the ZMQ API changes, this can result in error messages which
are hard to understand.

For distribution packagers it makes life easier.

It would be nice to put this information also in the ZMQ tarball.
