Right.  I think that NameSortColumnFamily and TimeSortColumnFamily might not be a bad specialization
to make.  For us at least we will use a lot more name sorted so gaining efficiency there is
worth a little effort.  But this should wait until we have a performance test.

> The implementation of EfficientBidiMap(EBM) today stores the column in two place, a map
and a sorted set. Both data structures store exactly the same values.
> I assume we're storing this twice so that the map can give us O(1) reads while the sortedset
is important for efficient flush. Is this tradeoff important ? Do we want to store the data
twice to get O(1) reads over O(log(n)) reads from sortedset? Is the sortedset implementation
broken? Perhaps we should consider a configuration option that turns off the map -- write
performance will be slightly improved, read performance will be somewhat worse, and the memory
footprint will probably be about half. Certainly sounds like a good alternative tradeoff.
