Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-48:
-----------------------------------------

Sandeep: you're right, timestamp is better here.

Jun: I don't think we need to do anything special -- we already have code to handle saying
"i want to block for N replicas before calling the write a success."  that could work here
unchanged.

> Atomic test-and-set insert operation would be nice: "set value to X but only if the current
value is still Y."  This allows a sort of optimistic consistency: perform a GET, then perform
test-and-set with the value of that GET as Y.
> I do not think that this requires strong consistency to be useful.
