> Allow periodic checkpoints to be persisted by writing out their meta data. 
> This is what we currently do for savepoints, but in the future checkpoints 
> and savepoints are likely to diverge with respect to guarantees they give for 
> updatability, etc.
> This means that the difference between persistent checkpoints and savepoints 
> in the long term will be that persistent checkpoints can only be restored 
> with the same job settings (like parallelism, etc.)
> Regular and persisted checkpoints should behave differently with respect to 
> disposal in *globally* terminal job states (FINISHED, CANCELLED, FAILED): 
> regular checkpoints are cleaned up in all of these cases whereas persistent 
> checkpoints only on FINISHED. Maybe with the option to customize behaviour on
