Subject Re: [QUESTION] thread model in Flink makes me confused

I favor the one-cluster-per job approach. If this becomes the dominant
approach to doing things we could also think about introducing a separate
component that would allow monitoring the jobs in these per-job clusters as
is now possible when running multiple jobs in a single cluster.
