@fredrik fredrik change pyzmq dependency to pyzmq-static.
this is to avoid forcing an installation of zeromq (and libuuid-dev).

installing zeromq is especially tricky on ubuntu 10.04 since there are
no packages for it. compilation from source becomes necessary and much
pain ensues.

pyzmq-static distribution was created by Brandon Craig Rhodes after he
became frustrated with having to install both libuuid-dev and ZeroMQ
itself on every machine where he then wanted to install pyzmq.

further rationale:
