      Description

      Default way of creating stream out of Kafka source would be as

      val stream = KafkaUtils.createStream(ssc,"localhost:2181","logs", Map("retarget" -> 2,"datapair" -> 2))

      However, if two topics - in this case "retarget" and "datapair" - are very different, there is no way to set up different filter, mapping functions, etc), as they are effectively merged.

      However, instance of KafkaInputDStream, created with this call internally calls ConsumerConnector.createMessageStream() which returns map of KafkaStreams, keyed by topic. It would be great if this map would be exposed somehow, so aforementioned call

      val streamS = KafkaUtils.createStreamS(...)

      returned map of streams.
