how about a command line script (bin/ to load in a
file for the configs to initialize the config values in zookeerper but
kafka reads the configs from zookeeper

another script can also have options for doing updates

if we provide a writing mechanism then the config management systems (we
use chef) can interact nice the zookeeper updates in a standard way that we
document and support

win? win?
