    I think we should not expose the internal op codes, etc to end users, through API or through
the public constant definition included in this patch. We can get rid of the constants definitions
here and instead, whenever we want to audit log something we create the operation string on
site and directly pass the string to the audit event function call. Something like:
    `case OpCode.create:
          subResult = new CreateResult(subTxnResult.path);
          addSuccessAudit(request, cnxn, "create", subTxnResult.path);
          break;
    `
    This approach seems make the maintain overhead low as we don't have to worry about the
correlations between various op codes definitions and the only catch is we might have to duplicate
the op code string in different places if we audit logging same thing in different places
- but in this case it seems the cost of duplication is low comparing to maintaining explicit
op constants. 
    
    I also checked HDFS code base and it took a similar approach.

> Lots of users have had questions on debugging which client changed what znode and what
updates went through a znode. We should add audit logging as in Hadoop (look at Namenode Audit
logging) to log which client changed what in the zookeeper servers. This could just be a log4j
audit logger.
