Thanks, fix applied.

Neat, I'd not even tried it on Mac yet.

It'll be packaged together with libzmq eventually, and could be used
by bindings in other languages if they like it, but it's a separate
project in terms of goals and codebase, and won't IMO be folded into
libzmq. Indeed, it's only possible to develop stuff like libzapi
outside the core.

Having said that, there may be semantics developed in projects like
zapi which eventually get picked up by libzmq. E.g. 'more' property on
frames rather than sockets, automatic closing of sockets, etc.
