Subject usefulness of UnhandledErrorListener
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2014 15:23:39 GMT

I am trying to decide whether I need to add an UnhandledErrorListener to 
my Curator application in order to guarantee graceful handling of 
connection loss or other failures.

At, I see the following paragraph:

"UnhandledErrorListener is called when a background task, etc. catches 
an exception. In general, Curator users shouldn't care about these as 
they are logged. However, you can listen for them if you choose."

What is the purpose then of an UnhandledErrorListener?  Is it purely for 
any custom logging that a Curator user might wish to perform? Are there 
any known use cases where it is worthwhile to catch and handle 
exceptions in some other manner here?
