Subject Re: A modest proposal for simplifying zookeeper :)

Hi Kevin,
  It would be great to have such high level interfaces. It could be
something that you could contribute :) . We havent had the bandwidth to
provide such interfaces for zookeeper. It would be great to have all such
recipes as a part of contrib package of zookeeper.
