I started on a proof of concept a week or so ago; the idea is to build
a tiny C stack that implements the wire protocols, but for systems
that can't run the full library, e.g. with restrictions on dynamic
memory allocation. Performance would not be the primary goal. Therei's
a PoC pub and sub socket here: https://github.com/hintjens/zmtplib.

Nanomsg is also very interesting but it's not, afaik, aimed at tiny
systems, nor does it have ZMTP protocol compatibility as goal.
