>                 URL:

>          Issue Type: Wish

>            Reporter: André Cruz
>            Priority: Critical
> When a client issues a delete with a consistency level >= QUORUM, all replicas are
contacted, even though the coordinator may return the answer before all responses arrive if
QUORUM. Therefore, in the usual case when all replicas are alive, the coordinator will know
when a delete has been ACKed by all replicas responsible for that data. In this situation
I think it would be beneficial if the coordinator could notify the replicas that that tombstone
is safe to purge on the next compaction, regardless of the gc_grace value.
> This would make tombstones disappear much faster than they normally would.
