Maybe I'm missing something but this seems like a case of using some common sense to arrive at a somewhat simple answer.

It would seem to me that you could set the lens to a certain F-stop like 5.6. Then, change the ISO on your meter until it tells you that your lens should be properly set at 5.6. Note your ISO and use that in the future.

The problem with using the zebra is that you have to move the camera around in order to check exposure.
