-------------------------------------------------------------------

File-based synch is still in use in some Linux installations, and seems to provide a good
fallback if zookeeper fails for some reason.

> Windows 7 now seems to have some kind of broken file caching which defeats file-based
locking almost completely.  I'm not sure what windows update applied this, but starting the
agents process seems to pick up state that has manifestly been deleted from the file system.
> For MCF 2.0, it's probably a good idea to get rid of file-based synch entirely, and require
people to use ZooKeeper instead.
