python-zmq already is in EPEL6. It's missing in EPEL5 because
python2.4 is too old and not supported:

* python-zmq will never exist in EPEL5 (unless someone will fork
upstream and make it work with python2.4) or
* python-zmq will contain and provide python26-zmq or
* there will only be python26-zmq
The draft guidelines for EPEL5 don't cover this case...

(I would prefer the providing solution 2 above, unless someone objects...)
