[zeromq-dev] zproject and zactors

We're using zproject on CZMQ and several other projects, so it's live.
It's built from a lot of different generators, the actor generator
being one of them. Your milage may vary, as these are not all equally
mature or widely used. I've not tried the actor generator myself.

However you've got something more basic wrong IMO. The workflow is
"gsl project.xml", which runs the various generators your project file
requires. You start with a simple project.xml, then expand on it.

I guess an empty project.xml looks like this:

    name = "hello"
    description = "Hello World"
    script = "zproject.gsl"
    email = "hello at world.com"
    <version major = "0" minor = "0" patch = "0" />
    <use project = "czmq" />
