In 0.7, one way to do this is to use a vip. All producers send data to the
vip. To decommission a broker,  you first take the broker out of vip so no
new data will be produced to it. Then you let the consumer drain the data
(you can use ConsumerOffsetChecker to check if all data has been consumed).
Finally, you can shut down the broker.

This will be much easier in 0.8 because of replication.
