I'm in agreement with this.

I don't mind tooz either (it's good at what it is for) since I took a 
part in creating it... Given that I can't help but wonder how nice it 
would be to pick one (etcd, zookeeper, consul?) and just do nice things 
with it (perhaps u know even work with the etcd or zookeeper or consul 
developers [depending on which one we pick] on features and bug fixes 
and such).

Ya, to me zookeeper and etcd look pretty much the same now-a-days.

Which I guess is why https://github.com/coreos/zetcd ('A ZooKeeper 
"personality" for etcd) (although I'm not sure I'd want to run that, ha) 
exists as a thing.
