Richard, KAFKA-156 is something that the client could take care of.  It is
2 years old and a bit of a hack suggestion for what Replication in 0.8.0
has become and I would argue we close it (we should go through all the
ticket prior to 0.9 and chat about them, separate thread I will start on
dev).  Replication solves the problem stated in the ticket as messages are
NOT dropped with brokers unavailable.

The documentation for replication is here
