I want to listen opinions from community about consolidating JeroMQ namespace with jzmq.

When  we use JeroMQ, it starts the following import statement

import org.jeromq.ZMQ;
import org.jeromq.ZMQ.Socket;

For jzmq

import org.zeromq.ZMQ;
import org.zeromq.ZMQ.Socket;
Other than namespace, class and method signature are compatible with jzmq.

I hope JeroMQ to be inter-changible with jzmq just by changing the jar file. 

If we think current jzmq signature as an Java API, we could use different carrier based on their purpose without changing the source code.

At the future, another implementation, say JavaMQ, will appear and we could also it by dropping another jar. Then we could extract general Java interfaces.

Please let me know any opinion about renaming JeroMQ namespace from 'org.jeromq' to 'org.zeromq'
