I've actually understood the difference between 0MQ and the PyZMQ 
binding project.

I just figured out that 0MQ is on 2.0.10, whereas PyZMQ is 2.0.8 ... so 
when MinRK referred to PyZMQ's upcoming 2.0.10 release, I got the 
version numbering mixed up which version number was referring to the 
core and which was referring to the Python binding.

What I am still confused by is something I read somewhere about 
requiring Cython *IF* you are doing PyZMQ development, implying that I 
don't need Cython if I am not doing PyZMQ development. Since I 
downloaded a stable release of 0MQ, it seemed to me that I didn't need 
to have Cython, but it appears that I do.
