> In 0.7.x and earlier versions offsets were assigned by the byte location in the file.
Because it wasn't possible to directly decompress from the middle of a compressed block, messages
inside a compressed message set effectively had no offset. As a result the offset given to
the consumer was always the offset of the wrapper message set.
> In 0.8 after the logical offsets patch messages in a compressed set do have offsets.
However the server still needs to fetch from the beginning of the compressed messageset (otherwise
it can't be decompressed). As a result a commit() which occurs in the middle of a message
set will still result in some duplicates.
> This can be fixed in the ConsumerIterator by discarding messages smaller than the fetch
offset rather than giving them to the consumer. This will make commit work correctly in the
presence of compressed messages (finally).
