Subject Re: C binding zoo_get(): need to know max data length in advance

Thanks for the suggestion Marshall!

zoo_get() returns ZOK all the same except that the data is silently truncated to fit the buffer
However, what I can do is to compare the buffer size to Stat.dataLength returned along with

I think this is a pretty common use-case actually. If one client has put something into zookeeper
and another client is trying to pull it out it may not know it advance how big the data client#1
put in. What we do locally is have a wrapper around zoo_get that starts with a reasonable
default for buffer_len. If it fails b/c the data is larger than that, then you can inspect
the size inside the returned Stat* and then re-issue the get with the correct value.
