[zeromq-dev] New Common Lisp zeromq binding

Hi again Nicolas,

I finally got around to porting my code from the old cl-zmq to your
lisp-zmq. It is superior in quite a few ways, and is, of course, actively
maintained. There's nothing like an overnight bugfix to an issue to make
users happy. :-)

A major problem with the old cl-zmq is that it does not support ZMQ 2.1
correctly - just 2.0.

We should try to work with Xach to get lisp-zmq and the CFFI that lisp-zmq
requires into quicklisp*, and then make a case for your binding to become
the official binding for lisp. Probably by someone doing the work to update
the guide to use lisp-zmq.

Thanks for the binding,


(* quicklisp is the de facto standard third-party package manager for lisp,
like Pypi for Python or CPAN for Perl.)
