[~mjsax] Is this Jira pending any further API redesign discussions? If not I'd like to give
this a shot.

> Add event-based session windows

>                 Key: KAFKA-4731
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-4731
>             Project: Kafka
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: streams

> Kafka Streams allows to define session windows based on an time-based inactivity gap.
This can be used for _session detection_.
> However, some data streams do contain event like "start session" and "end session" to
mark the begin and end of a session. For this use case, it is not required to _detect_ session
because session boundaries are known and not based on time -- but on events.
> This Jira is about adding support for those event-based session windows. To add this
feature, a KIP (https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/KAFKA/Kafka+Improvement+Proposals)
is required to discuss the proposed design.
