(From http://kafka.apache.org/design.html) one potential benefit of the
existing rebalancing logic is to reduce the number of connections to
brokers per consumer instance. However, if you have a large number of
partitions and few brokers and/or consumer instances then it wouldn't
really help; so I agree it would be good to implement KAFKA-687.
KAFKA-564<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-564> may
also be related - i.e., it may be easier to implement along with/after
