[~ewencp] Thanks for clarifying :)  I'll keep it the fix version blank next time for minor
patches like this

> Our internal converter configuration is shown in connect-distributed.properties and connect-standalone.properties.
> This tempts users to change it.
> In particular, they seem to believe it needs to be identical to key/value converters.
> In reality, Connect doesn't deal well with anything other than schemaless JSON as the
internal converter. Users get errors and find it hard to figure out what went wrong (since
this is internal, they are not expected to).
> Let's stop tempting users into shooting their own feet?
