Once you have an offset, is it possible to know how many messages there are
from that point to the end? (or least for the particular topic partition
that you are requested data from?).

The idea is to get an idea how far behind the consumers are from the # of
messages coming in etc.

I'm guessing the broker's dont' really know how many messages they are
currently storing?  Or is that what the index is for?
