      Description

      It would be useful to provide a default producer we can fire up that reads from STDIN and sends one message per line to the broker.

      The most obvious use case for this is to pipe a tail -f command into it, to tail log files as they're generated. Making it depend on STDIN seems more flexible than a producer that just tails files though.
