Subject Change in merge policy syntax
Date Tue, 28 Nov 2017 03:24:01 GMT
Dear devs,
We would like to get your input on changing the syntax of the merge policy definition.

Current syntax:
<USING> <COMPACTION> <POLICY> prefix_merge (("number"="123"),("size"="456"));

Proposed syntax
<WITH> {"compaction policy": {"name": "prefix_merge", "parameters": {"number": 123,"size":
456}}};

Advantages:
1. Compaction and policy are not key words anymore.
2. Use a JSON for key value pairs instead of a strange syntax.

Thoughts?
