I do not hold back my concerns hand them out in piecemeal fashion.  I overlooked the DLL in
earlier release candidate reviews; I made a mistake.  :)

I think that Sebb has made some good suggestions.  It is not a requirement that the NOTICE
file be minimal.  Let's worry about this for the 0.7.x or 0.8.0 release.

IIUC, all that really needs to be done is to add NUnit to the NOTICE and LICENSE files.

We can perform all the other suggestions in a subsequent release.  I invite those who are
interested to join the kafka project at kafka-dev and submit patches.  :)
