Forever is a long time. The definition of replay and navigating through
different versions of kafka would be key.

If you are storing market data into kafka and have a cep engine running on
top and would like replay "transactions" to be fed back to ensure
replayability, then you would probably want to manage that through the same
mechanism as it existed at that time in the past. This might mean a
different kafka broker (perhaps 0.7) with a different set of consumers with
a potentially different JVM. This, of course, gets into a rat hole.
