It's been a year and a half since I created QZmq, so I cannot remember 
the exact reason, but I believe it was because neither Zeromqt nor Nzmqt 
supported fully event-driven reads and writes (at least at the time), 
and I didn't agree with the headers-only style of development used by 
Nzmqt so I thought I'd try my own rather than contribute.

So the advantage of QZmq is it supports write notifications, and it also 
includes a Valve class which makes it easy to implement backpressure.

Probably one should choose between Nzmqt or QZmq. I believe Zeromqt has 
gone unmaintained, and its own documentation suggests uses Nzmqt instead.
