The Fetcher class is used internally by the KafkaConsumer to fetch records from the brokers. There is ongoing work to create a new consumer implementation with a significantly refactored threading model. The threading refactor work requires a similarly refactored Fetcher.
This task includes refactoring Fetcher by extracting out the inner classes into top-level (though still in internal) so that those classes can be referenced by forthcoming refactored fetch logic.
