Apologies for brutally chopping the email chain; my mail client made a
horrible hash of it.

Right now, all we are doing with Kube labels is to label each action
container with its owning invoker on startup.  This lets us delete orphaned
containers if the invoker crashes and needs to be restarted.  The labeling
happens at [1] and the removal of orphans using the labels at [2].

I think the Kube-native version of part of what you are doing with the
DistributedData for Mesos would be to add and remove additional labels to
give us the option of attaching a new invoker instance to orphaned
containers instead of just destroying them.   Interacting with the
Kubernetes API server to do a labeling operation takes around 10ms, so we
couldn't do this on a truly hot path.  But we could probably afford to
update container labels in parallel with pause/unpause operations, which
could enable re-attachment to any paused containers.
