> What's new, from the README for this new version:
> ----------------------------------
> More test coverage. 
> Better reference counting, fixing at least two serious bugs.
> Out-of-range zhandles are now checked, fixing a potential security hole.
> Docstrings! Editing and cleanup required, but most of the text is there.
> zookeeper.set_watcher is now implemented correctly.
> zookeeper.client_id is now implemented correctly. zookeeper.init now respects 
> the client_id parameter.
> get_context and set_context have been removed from the API. The context 
> mechanism is used by PyZK to store the callables that are dispatched by 
> C-side watchers. Messing with this from Python-side causes bugs very quickly. 
> You should wrap all desired context up in a callable and then use 
> zookeeper.set_watcher to attach it to the global watcher. 
> Many methods now have optional parameters (usually if you can specify a 
> watch, it's optional). The only time where genuinely optional parameters are 
> still mandatory is when a required parameters comes after it. Currently we 
> still respect the ZK C client parameter ordering. For example, you can simply 
> connect with zookeeper.init("host:port") and ignore the other three 
> parameters.
