> Source connectors that need to poll for data are currently responsible for managing their
own sleeping/backoff if they don't have any new data available. This is becoming a very common
pattern. It's also easy to implement it incorrectly, e.g. by using Thread.sleep and not properly
interrupting on stop().
> We should probably provide some utilities, maybe just exposed via the Context object
to implement this for connector developers.
