This proposal still doesn't address the following fundamental issue: The
random partitioner cannot select a random and AVAILABLE partition.
So, we have the following two choices.
1. Stick with the current partitioner api.
Then, we have to pick one way to do random partitioning (when key is null).
The current behavior may not be very intuitive, but is one of the possible
behaviors in 0.7.
2. Change the partitioner api so that we can (1) be aware of available
partitions and (2) have pluggable partitioners for doing random
Option (2) is probably the right approach. However, it's a non-trivial
change. So, I am not sure if it should be done in 0.8 or not.
