Curator already has the EnsembleProvider interface that I wrote to integrate with Exhibitor.
We might be able to repurpose it for this.

Subject:  Re: ZooKeeper 3.5.0 is coming  

From the following:  

It appears that from Curator's point of view, we need to be aware of config  
changes (by watching the /zookeeper/config zNode), to determine when the  
clusters configuration has changed. Then, if it has changed, determine  
whether our client needs to connect to a different host in the cluster.  
There are underlying API calls on the Zookeeper client that handle the  
algorithms for reconnection, Curator would just need to identify when the  
changes occur.  

Presumably we'd add something to the CuratorFramework and  
CuratorFrameworkFactory classes.  

This sort of changes the way that client configuration works to a degree.  
Instead of it being a static thing where you configure your list of ZK  
nodes, and that's it, now you're kind of configuring a set (potentially a  
subset of all ZK nodes in the cluster) of ZK nodes that will then allow you  
to look up the full set of nodes in the cluster. I would think that this  
needs to be optional, but I think that it would be useful functionality to  
have Curator be able to configure itself against what the ZK cluster  
considers the cluster members to be at startup, and then dynamically  
reconfigure itself as this changes.  

So, essentially, Curator would:  
-Connect to one of its configured ZK nodes  
-Read the /zookeeper/config configuration  
-Reconfigure itself based on that configuration  
-Watch for future config updates.  

I'm happy to start looking into this in a bit more detail unless someone  
else has their heart set on it.
