-------------------------------------

That's true, but I didn't think that was the goal of this ticket.

> Yang points out on CASSANDRA-2252,
> "Conceivably, one region would contain bytebuffer values of similar age. as more updates
come in, all the columns in older regions are likely to have all died out, thus allowing us
to free the entire region before flushing happens."
> So it's a bit of a corner case optimization, but easy to do and safe.
