there is one little pitfall here: CMake generated MSVC projects have a
dependency to CMake. Each build step first "builds" a special target
which checks if the CMake files have changed and reconfigure the
project, if so.
I haven't experience, yet, how much work it is to get rid of this
dependency after the project files are generated.

Anyway, I would like to have CMake files for ZeroMQ as it would enable
us to directly access it in our build system.
