        Note to self: This came up on the user list and there was also significant interest in also indexing by message number ("I would like to go back 10,000 messages, please give me that offset").

        As a related thing, to make this really useful we should integrate it into the consumer API. I.e. give an API along the lines of consumer.resetTo(long).
