    Your concerns for this fix is quite correct, and is why this PR was closed 
in the first place as there are a lot of ill-defined semantics introduced by 
this.
    
    Regarding your thought on relating idleness to empty results returned from 
Kafka: I think that seems like a good approach, and should also capture Eron's 
comment quite well.
