I am not aware of that. You are free to try.

However, the libzmq functionality is quite complex and requires lot of 
work to reimplement. Thus, the actual ports so far (javascript etc.) 
choose to implement a "client" library:

1. TCP transport only.
2. There's no "bind", just "connect"
3. The connect is synchronous
4. Sends and recvs are synchronous.
5. No auto-reconnections, connection errors are reported to the user.

Doing the above requires just a modest amount of work.
