As I mentioned in the other thread, there was specific and strong
anti-etcd sentiment in Tokyo which is why we decided to use an
abstraction. I continue to be in favor of us having one known service in
this space, but I do think that it's important to revisit that decision
fully and in context of the concerns that were raised when we tried to
pick one last time.

It's worth noting that there is nothing particularly etcd-ish about
storing config that couldn't also be done with zk and thus just be an
additional api call or two added to Tooz with etcd and zk drivers for it.
