Subject Re: ClientProtocol create、mkdirs 、rename and delete methods are not Idempotent
Date Sun, 28 Oct 2012 18:33:27 GMT
Create cannot be idempotent because of the problem of watches and
sequential files.

Similarly, mkdirs, rename and delete cannot generally be idempotent.  In
particular applications, you might find it is OK to treat them as such, but
there are definitely applications where they are not idempotent.
