I'm not sure what solution you are agreeing to here. 

1. Renaming your profile to zeromq.

2. Using branches in your repository rather than forking another one.

3. Using patch releases for bug fixes, minor releases for api breakage, major releases for significant library changes.

4. ???

Also, Martin L. and I are the only ones to speak up so far. This topic has existed for barely 24 hours. I recommend we leave it for another 24-48 hours to get more input from other community members. I'm sure there are some good ideas out there that we haven't heard yet.
