Re: hadoop-consumer code in contrib package
I think the main reason for using SimpleConsumer is to manage offsets
explicitly. For example, this is useful when Hadoop retries failed tasks.
Another reason is that Hadoop already does load balancing. So, there is not
much need to balance the load again using the high level consumer.

Thanks,
