Can you say more about why this is needed?  Why does it matter if your
debugged program or some other is watching these nodes?  If you absolutely
need to have somebody watching these nodes, why not run a program that
permanently watches these nodes in addition to the program under test.

This can be emulated by keeping a znode with a list of the paths that
should be watched.  I don't understand how it needs to be a primitive
