      Description

      TopicCount uses scala.util.parsing.json.JSON, which isn't thread-safe https://issues.scala-lang.org/browse/SI-4929

      If you have multiple consumers within the same JVM, and they all rebalance at the same time, you can get errors like the following:

      [...] kafka.consumer.TopicCount$.constructTopicCount:39] ERROR: error parsing consumer json string [...]

      I ran into this on 0.7.0, but the code in trunk appears to be vulnerable to the same issue.
