Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-5062:
---------------------------------------------

bq. I think to start with using gcgs for TTL is fine

I though of that, but I'm slightly afraid of people using gcgs == 0 on a CF because they are
not doing any deletes on that CF (but may have a fixed TTL on everything, which is a valid
reason to use gcgs == 0). I'd be fine spawning a following ticket to create a separate setting
however.

> "Strong" consistency is not enough to prevent race conditions.  The classic example is
user account creation: we want to ensure usernames are unique, so we only want to signal account
creation success if nobody else has created the account yet.  But naive read-then-write allows
clients to race and both think they have a green light to create.
