Hi Tao,

Yes, as I said, that would not be enough for your use-case. But it will
allow a SASL mechanism to be specified via a config. In theory, you could
extend that to allow user classes to implement SASL mechanisms. Anyway, I
am not suggesting that this is better than having pluggable ChannelBuilder
implementations, just that it's an alternative (which was your question :)).

I will write a KIP to open the discussion.


p.s. Ismael, can you grant me the permission to create a KIP in Kafka space?

I don't have the permissions to do it, sorry. Guozhang has done it though.
