i'm ready to reevaluate it. i did the contrib for fatjar and it was extremely painful! (and that was an extremely simple contrib!) we really want to ramp up the contribs and get a bunch of recipe implementations in, so we need something that makes it really easy. i'm not a fan of maven (they seem to have chosen a convention that is convenient for the build tool rather the developer), but it is widely used and i we need something better, so i'm certainly considering it.

Speaking of the contrib section, what is the status of ZOOKEEPER-103?
Is it ready to be reevaluated now that 3.0 is out?

Hi Kevin,
 It would be great to have such high level interfaces. It could be
something that you could contribute :) . We havent had the bandwidth to
provide such interfaces for zookeeper. It would be great to have all such
recipes as a part of contrib package of zookeeper.

OK.... so it sounds from the group that there are still reasons to provide
rope in ZK to enable algorithms like leader election.
Couldn't ZK ship higher level interfaces for leader election, mutexes,
semapores, queues, barriers, etc instead of pushing this on developers?

Then the remaining APIs, configuration, event notification, and discovery,
can be used on a simpler, rope free API.

The rope is what's killing me now :)
