He would:)
 
The two sites for release builds are Sourceforge and Pypi.

Ralf - any thoughts?

pypi is accepting wheels:

http://pythonwheels.com/
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pyzmq/14.0.1

We tried once to put wheels on SF without much response, and if we put them on testpypi I don't expect much more. Since the wheels appear to work, let's just put them on PyPi and fix possible issues if and when they show up.
