Subject RE: ZooKeeper clients does not handle new error codes properly

Thanks Benjamin Reed,
Client protocol version is 0, it is not changed. Also there is no logic executed at the server
side based on the client protocol version. Increasing the client protocol version and converting
the errors at server may be the ideal and more precise solution but to handle it in a generic
way can we convert the unknown error to KeeperException.SystemErrorException at client side?
Do you foresee any problem in this solution?

did we bump the protocol version when we added the new errors? the server could do the conversion
when it responds to older clients.
