Very nice!

A couple of questions:

 * "Automatic resource recovery" in README is a little vague. Can you explain how it works and what kind of scenarios does it cover?
 * Are you familiar with how Ruby and Clojure clients perform recovery, e.g. [1]?

FYI, there are chances that similar features will eventually make it into the Java client, although
there is no specific plan for this at the moment. But more 3rd party clients that support recovery
demonstrates the need for such features.
