I started to look at pyzmq based on zmq3.
I would like to also add pypy support. The easiest way to do this
without bloating the debian/rules is to use the new pybuild build helper.
Unfortunately the way pybuild is packaged now and probably also in
future will make backporting of it very hard to impossible (at least in
derivatives like Ubuntu with much stricter backporting rules).

Do you have any backporting plans regarding pyzmq3?

For my purposes zeromq2 is sufficient, so I have no plans.
But if you want to do it its possibly better I do a traditional
dh_python2 upload first and later update to pybuild with pypy support.
