    I understand wanting to keep memory low but there's a point where you take 
things too far.  At some point usability and correctness is more important.  
Having just a consumerId is just not correct, end of story.  It is not a unique 
value and will be duplicated. The client library is responsible for creating 
that consumerId per session so there's no way to go back and make the 
consumerId unique (can't change old client libraries).  I wish there were, that 
would solve this problem.
    I do not agree that refactoring is the best approach.  At the end of the 
day if we can't add a reference to a String I think we are taking trying to 
limit memory usage too far.
