Just to clarify that, while PyZMQ wraps a library written in C++, libzmq's
public API is C, not C++. PyZMQ does not use any of Cython's C++
functionality. I have done other similar (unfortunately not public)
projects that wrap actual C++ libraries with Cython, and I have been happy
with Cython's C++ support[1].
