InterruptedException is rather tricky because the semantics of Thread.isInterrupted() is rather
vague. specifically, it is unclear why someone would interrupt a thread. usually Thread.interrupt()
is used to shut things down which requires special handing. thus we propagate it. for example,
i'm not clear how you shutdown your poll() method. an easy way to do it would be to use Thread.interrupt().

Hi Kevin,
 The interrupt exception would be thrown in case any other thread tries to
interrupt zookeeper threads during a client call (its not really
interrupting the server but interrupting the client threads). Its like any
synchronous operation that waits throwing an interrupted exception if
interrupted by any other thread.


PS: ill try responding to your other emails as well as soon as possible :).
