> This concerns:
> static int MAX_COMPACTING_L0 = 32;
> Repair can create very small SSTable segments. We should consider moving to a threshold
that takes into account the size of the files brought into compaction rather than the number
of files for this and similar situations. Bringing the small files from L0 to L1 magnifies
the issue.
> If there are too many very small files in L0 perhaps even an intermediate compaction
would even reduce the magnifying effect of a L0 to L1 compaction.
