      Description

      It would be nice if you could get an explanation for each tool by running the command with no arguments. Something like bin/kafka-preferred-replica-election.sh is a little scary so it would be nice to have it self-describe:
      > bin/kafka-preferred-replica-election.sh
      This command attempts to return leadership to the preferred replicas (if they are alive) from whomever is currently the leader).
