Re: Thread Safety of KafkaStreams
The partitions are ordered (in publication order) so there isn't an easy
way to split a single partition up amongst threads without breaking this,
which is the reason the consumer works that way. If you don't care about
order then just having a thread pool feed by a single iterator will work
just fine.
