Yeah I use verify() in the pybladeRF wrapper and it works very well, I just
haven't bothered to convert pyczmq yet.  Converting to verify will also
allow removing the hardwired constants in the pyczmq and relying instead of
cffi.verify's ability to resolve defines and enums at compile time.  I'll
take a stab at it tonight.
