Lars, did you thought about full port? I read post of etcimon about his Botan lib. He eventual decided to rewrite original lib from C++ to D to make code more easier maintainable.

I considered it, yes, but it is a *lot* more work, and I think the wrapper solution turned out rather nice. The ZMQ API is pretty "wrappable", and I don't expect it to become much more complex in the future either. The big changes these days seem to be in the ZMQ guys' own high-level wrapper library, CZMQ, rather than in ZMQ core.

Recently, I've played around with the idea of making a pure D implementation of Scalable Protocols, which was created by Martin Sustrik, one of the original ZMQ authors. He invented SP and the reference implementation, nanomsg (http://nanomsg.org), partly as kind of a do-over for some things he considered design mistakes in ZMQ. SP seems "cleaner" and more principled than ZMQ in many ways.

So many fun projects, so little time...
