I considered this as well; in my opinion, not all code will be so layered
as the scala code.  A topic metadata response would use the same mechanism,
including the [reference]s.  So in reality it's not *that* far away from
BNF, but I am asking about more emphasis on layout, and revealing type/size
information when practical.  If you like I can type out one for the
response, but I haven't done it yet :)

At the end of the day, the main reason I like to see the protocol breakdown
is simple: I just inspect buffers/packets to see if things look right.  Be
they from a debugger, or tcpdump, the packet is the packet is the packet,
and having a clear way to see read the wired data matters.  I come from a
networking background, so perhaps I'm just biased in that way.
