> Support Keberos authentication of clients. 
> The following usage would let an admin use Kerberos authentication to assign ACLs to
authenticated clients.
> 1. Admin logs into zookeeper (not necessarily through Kerberos however). 
> 2. Admin decides that a new node called '/mynode' should be owned by the user 'zkclient'
and have full permissions on this.
> 3. Admin does: zk> create /mynode content kerb:zkclient@FOOFERS.ORG:x:cdrwa
> (note: for now, the dummy ':x' is a placeholder for the password, and is required by
the zk command parser. The user's actual password is not stored within Zookeeper; simply put
'x' there.)
> 4. User 'zkclient' logins to kerberos using the command line utility 'kinit'.
> 5. User connects to zookeeper server using a Kerberos-enabled version of zkClient (ZookeeperMain).
> 6. Behind the scenes, the client and server exchange authentication information. User
is now authenticated as 'zkclient'.
> 7. User accesses /mynode with permissions 'cdrwa'.
