Congratulations for the zmq ffi based bindings !

The next library that I would really like to see using ffi bindings is OpenGL... If anyone starts such bindings, please write a note on the mailing list so we do not duplicate effort.

I spent a few hours making the first version of the FFI based binding to
ZeroMQ, but then I spent a few more hours profiling, optimizing and debugging
those bindings.  With my bindings generator it would take me about the same
amount of time to create normal Lua bindings vs. FFI base bindings.
