had a conversation this afternoon with a coworker about fixing an oversight in a single kafka producer. As we talked it out, we non-ironically began to posit that fixing the damn thing might require a brand new microservice, publishing new events from an entirely different, unrelated service, replicating/sharing a large collection of data across those services and perhaps some creative batching.

If that's not a warning sign of a fragile architecture, I don't know what is.
