You can certainly use different clients for producers and consumers.
E.g., you could have a Python producer, a C producer, and a Scala
consumer; or any combination thereof.

If you want your consumers to participate in a consumer group, you'll
need to use the Java or Scala client (or a 3rd party client that
supports consumer groups).
