My use case is essentially the same as above, i.e., dynamic load balancing.
 I now understand why the current partitioning strategy is used as opposed
to consistent hashing; partition "stickiness"
is definitely to be desired for the sake of moving computation to data.
However, the dynamic rebalancing as described in "Kafka Replication
Design", sect. 1.2 looks very similar to what's typically achieved by using
consistent hashing.
Is this rebalancing implemented in 0.8 or am I reading the now obsolete
documentation? :)  (If yes, could you please refer me to the code.)
