The java/scala clients are complete. The non-java support is kind of weak
at this point. In particular, Kafka has a thick client (lots of interaction
with ZK during rebalance and committing offsets) in the consumer. This
makes reimplementing the logic in each language hard, At this moment, the
RB client only supports SimpleConsumer, not the high level consumer.
