No worries Philip, I'll assume you you mispoke at first when talking about
a load-balancer between the consumers and brokers.  Kafka, unfortunately,
doesn't allow consumers to connect to kafka via a load balancer.  For
producers, also, you can't really use a load-balancer to connect to brokers
(you can use zk, or you can use a broker list, in 0.7.2, and in 0.8, you
can use an LB for the initial meta data connection, but then you still have
to have direct connections to each broker from each producer).
