Subject Re: An interesting problem removing a key
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2011 06:37:50 GMT
 I dont think I fully understand the use case. Is it possible that you
can register a different callback for that key?

Something like:

zk.exists(String path, Watcher watcher)

where you can register a different watcher for this path?

Would this work?
