Subject Re: kafka-clients version

Gotcha. Yes, we can obviously change the version of the client lib, but
it's misleading because they were named "2_0" because they use the "2_0"
client, and now that won't be true anymore, but if others agree with this
then maybe it's fine.

Maybe more of a question for the dev list.
