Currently the only way to see a shell's scan iterators is with "info -v".  It seems like it
would make sense to make it easier to find that information, although I'm not sure if config
is the appropriate place.  The scan iterators do not have to be stored in zookeeper, so properties
like those displayed by config are never created for them.  Perhaps we could display the scan
iterator information you get with "info -v" after the normal config properties when you use
"config".  We could consider synthesizing fake properties for the scan iterators, but I'd
be reluctant to do so.
