> It would be nice to be able to root ZooKeeper handles at specific points in
> the namespace, so that applications that use ZooKeeper can work in their own
> rooted subtree.
> For example, if ops decides that application X can use the subtree /apps/X
> and application Y can use the subtree /apps/Y, X can to a chroot to /apps/X
> and then all its path references can be rooted at /apps/X. Thus when X
> creates the path "/myid", it will actually be creating the path
> There are two ways we can expose this mechanism: 1) We can simply add a
> chroot(String path) API, or 2) we can integrate into a service identifier
> scheme for example zk://server1:2181,server2:2181/my/root. I like the second
> form personally.
