Hi all,

I've started on a tiny C implementation of the 0MQ ZMTP protocol.

The goal is to get simple stacks that can work on embedded systems and
be easily rewritten in other languages.

A very basic proof of concept is here: https://github.com/hintjens/zmtplib


* 100% portable, especially to older or embedded systems
* 100% compatible at wire level with ZMTP/2.0
* Good enough performance but no better
* No library dependencies (especially libzmq)
* Will grow to support full 0MQ API

Current status:

* Proof of concept PUB and SUB
* Performance about 40% of libzmq
