/**
 * \file zookeeper.h 
 * \brief ZooKeeper functions and definitions.
 * 
 * ZooKeeper is a network service that may be backed by a cluster of
 * synchronized servers. The data in the service is represented as a tree
 * of data nodes. Each node has data, children, an ACL, and status information.
 * The data for a node is read and write in its entirety.
 * 
 * ZooKeeper clients can leave watches when they queries the data or children
 * of a node. If a watch is left, that client will be notified of the change.
 * The notification is a one time trigger. Subsequent chances to the node will
 * not trigger a notification unless the client issues a querity with the watch
 * flag set. If the client is ever disconnected from the service, even if the
 * disconnection is temporary, the watches of the client will be removed from
 * the service, so a client must treat a disconnect notification as an implicit
 * trigger of all outstanding watches.
 * 
 * When a node is created, it may be flagged as an ephemeral node. Ephemeral
 * nodes are automatically removed when a client session is closed or when
 * a session times out due to inactivity (the ZooKeeper runtime fills in
 * periods of inactivity with pings). Ephemeral nodes cannot have children.
 * 
 * ZooKeeper clients are identified by a server assigned session id. For
 * security reasons The server
 * also generates a corresponding password for a session. A client may save its
 * id and corresponding password to persistent storage in order to use the
 * session across program invocation boundaries.
