I agree with Benjamin, that it is unlikely that multiple ZooKeeper connections
in one application will ever become a bottleneck.
However I have some patches in the ZK jira (most notable ZOOKEEPER-911) and in
my mind that have the side effect that one ClientCnxn could easily be shared
for multiple application parts, even with differing changeroots.
