Hi Aaron, I wrote the pyczmq cffi bindings, and haven't looked at them in
some time.  Sorry if they have caused you some confusion.  I always assumed
that at some point zproject generation would replace them as hand
maintaining the bindings is a pain as evidenced by the fact that I haven't
done it :)  So, although I think it's more work, generating the bindings
automatically, as you sugguest here, I do think is the right approach.
CFFI is a bit more of a distribution pain than ctypes, but I think provides
a nicer model, in the end it probably won't matter much to users which one
is used.
