No thoughts on encrypting and authenticating zookeeper-to-zookeeper communication?

Stunnel is simple when you have one client, and one endpoint, but it sucks when you have multiple servers all trying to talk to each other.

If not, what about running a Zookeeper Observer in a "client" mode where I can point it to any of our 5 quorum servers, and it acts as a kind of proxy for data -- without really "joining" the cluster?
