PyZMQ makes no effort to test libzmq itself, so I would say that passing
pyzmq's tests only gets you "probably not totally broken."  It took me
about one day of using 3.1.1 to discover a dealbreaker bug for daily use
(reported as LIBZMQ-369).

I do think think a Python test suite for libzmq itself makes sense, but I
don't add tests for libzmq bugs to the pyzmq suite.
