Yes, this is a great point. I'm definitely not trying to predict the 
future, only trying to react in the case of an inconsistent cluster and 
cover the pathological cases where ZooKeeper itself is down. The code 
will also rejoin the cluster if it reappears.

Curator's Framework and Client utils seem like the right tool. My only 
hesitency initially was poor Scala integration, but a thin shim ought 
to be good enough.

Thanks again Camille & Henry,
