Curator waits for the time specified as the "connection timeout". Curator introduces three
connection states, CONNECTED, SUSPENDED and LOST. When SysDisconnected is received, Curator
sets the state to SUSPENDED and then issues a sync() in the background. This sync() does through
Curator's normal connection management, retries, etc. If the sync() doesn't succeed within
the connection timeout, Curator sets the state to LOST. How the application handles these
state changes is, of course, up to the app.
