> KafkaConsumer.listTopics() internally calls Fetcher. getAllTopicMetadata(timeout) and
this method will throw a TopicAuthorizationException when there exists an unauthorized topic
in the cluster. 
> This behavior runs counter to the API docs and makes listTopics() unusable except in
the case of the consumer is authorized for every single topic in the cluster. 
> A potentially better approach is to have Fetcher implement a new method getAuthorizedTopicMetadata(timeout)
 and have KafkaConsumer call this method instead of getAllTopicMetadata(timeout) from within
KafkaConsumer.listTopics()
