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

You may be interested in this ticket, CASSANDRA-6680. It's assigned to me but I haven't really
had any time to work on it so far.

> This code in {{StorageProxy.beginAndRepairPaxos()}} takes a timestamp in microseconds
but divides it by 1000 before adding one. So if the summary is null, ballotMillis would be
the same for up to 1000 possible state timestamp values:
> {code}
>     long currentTime = (state.getTimestamp() / 1000) + 1;
>     long ballotMillis = summary == null
>                                  ? currentTime
>                                  : Math.max(currentTime, 1 +    UUIDGen.unixTimestamp(summary.mostRecentInProgressCommit.ballot));
>     UUID ballot = UUIDGen.getTimeUUID(ballotMillis);
> {code}
> {{state.getTimestamp()}} returns the time in micro seconds and it ensures to add one
microsecond to any previously used timestamp if the client sends the same or an older timestamp.

> Initially I used this code in {{ModificationStatement.casInternal()}}, introduced by
CASSANDRA-9160 to support cas unit tests, but occasionally these tests were failing. It was
only when I ensured uniqueness of the ballot that the tests started to pass reliably.
> I wonder if we could ever have the same issue in StorageProxy?
