As far as I can see, the kafka-c module is definitely in active use. I
added Pyr -- the original author of the kafka module -- on CC.

In addition I see once in a while that people are asking about grok and
zmq. On the other hand I'm not sure how much functional these modules are
(AFAIR the the source part of the ZMQ module was never really finished) and
the grok module builds on a C library which is not actively maintained for
many years.

I don't recall people mentioning any of the other modules recently.
