No. We are using branches and tags to manage the versions.

Individual bindings are free to use branch/tag mechanism as well, 
however, ZMQ_VERSION macros are introduced with the idea that binding 
developers are not working full-time on the project and don't have 
sufficient resources to administer the process of tagging, branching and 
version management.

Thus they can use ZMQ_VERSION that is cheap and kind of nasty :)
