Re: publish/subscribe data between services

Consul is a good fit for this problem, since it lets you register services,
perform consistent lookups when needed, or perform eventually consistent
(faster) lookups via HTTP or DNS. Using consul-template, you can also
reconfigure a reverse proxy like HAProxy or Nginx.

On a related note, I've been wondering how a ZooKeeper/Consul/Etcd tool
fits in with the supervision toolchain, what would be the ideal interface
for such a tool to gel with svscan, ucspi and friends.
