Could the maintainers please revert pull request #225 on the basis that it
does not fulfill the above requirement?

Also, I would like to propose that the following points are added to the
contribution policy:

* A patch must adhere to the ZeroMQ Coding Style Guidelines, as documented
  here: http://www.zeromq.org/docs:style.

* If your patch includes a substantial amount of code from a foreign
  project, such code must be placed into its own source file(s), preferably
  in the foreign/ directory in the ZeroMQ source tree unless this is not
  technically feasible, and any license and copyright information must be
  copied verbatim into the corresponding source files.

Both of the above should be fairly uncontroversial and are IMO essential
for the project.
