recursive watchers
URL: https://github.com/apache/zookeeper/pull/1106#issuecomment-538983035
   FYI - I wrote the Curator portions of this new feature as a test. One of 
them is a new path cache that replaces Curator's `TreeCache`, 
`PathChildrenCache` and `NodeCache`. First, the code is _so_ much simpler and 
easier to reason about. This alone will reduce errors and complexity. Also the 
number of ZK calls needed (and overhead for all those watchers) is vastly 
   I wrote a test to exercise the new cache, include with forced server 
crashes, and it's working perfectly. So, this suggest this new Watcher code is 
good. So, FYI, another data point.
   If anyone's interested - here's the code:
 - keeps a persistent watcher registered past any connection losses
 - a full tree cache - note how simple it is compared to the corresponding 
Curator recipes that have to use old style watchers.
