> I've been recently playing with Kafka and I found the current way of server configuration
quite inflexible. All the configuration options have to be inside a properties file and there
is no way how they can be overridden for execution.  In order to temporarily change one property
I had to copy the config file and change the property there. Hence, I'm wondering if people
would be open to provide a way how to specify and override the configs from the command line
when starting Kafka?
> Something like:
> {code}
> ./bin/kafka-server-start.sh -Dmy.cool.property=X kafka.properties
> {code}
> or 
> {code}
> ./bin/kafka-server-start.sh --set my.cool.property=X kafka.properties
> {code}
> I'm more than happy to take a stab at it, but I would like to see if there is an interest
for such capability?
