I think you are right, even if you did put an ELB in front of kafka, it
would only be used for getting the initial broker list afaik. Producers and
consumers need to be able to talk to each broker directly, and also
consumers need to be able to talk to zookeeper as well to store offsets.

Probably have to stunnel all the things.  Id be interested in hearing how
it works out. IMO this would be a great thing to have in kafka-contrib.
