Yes. Now, you don't extend zactor. You use it as an API factory (if
that's the right term).

To create context per actor instance (which is your question, I
think), you define a separate struct internally to the actor source;
see zyre.c and zyre_node_actor as example.

No virtual functions, no base classes, no inheritance. This isn't C++,
it's C with slightly clever APIs.
