Replicate to Confluence Kafka target support protobuf (gRPC) serialization in addition to JSON and Avro

We will use Confluence Kafka as a Replicate target, adding supported message formats to the Kafka registry.  Using only minor Replicate-style transformations, we would take the source message and convert it directly to protobuf, avoiding the hop currently required (in a vanilla text-based) format.  protobuf format can be serialized efficiently into binary form and is suitable for both Kafka messages and gRPC (web service) calls.
