> {{desiredNumWorkers}} in [UnboundedSource API|https://github.com/apache/incubator-beam/blob/v0.3.0-incubating-RC1/sdks/java/core/src/main/java/org/apache/beam/sdk/io/UnboundedSource.java#L69]
is a suggestion to a source about how many splits it should create. KafkaIO currently takes
this literally and only creates up to this many splits.
> The main draw back is that it is very low in Dataflow. It is calculated as 
>   * {{1 * maxNumWorkers}} if {{--maxNumWorkers}} is specified, otherwise
>   * {{3 * numWorkers}}.
> That implies there is only single reader per worker (which is usually a 4 core VM). That
can leave CPU under utilized on many pipelines.
> Even 3x in case of fixes number of workers seems low to me.
