In 0.8, we will provide a way for your to shutdown the broker in a
controlled fashion. What that would include is moving all the leaders away
from the broker so that it does not take any more produce requests. Once
that is done, you can shutdown the broker normally. You don't have to wait
until the consumers have pulled the data simply because they can consume
from the new leader.
