I think this is a mis-typing; it used to be that major compactions
were necessary to remove tombstones, but this is no longer the case in
0.7 so that the need for major compactions is significantly lessened
or even eliminated. However, running major compactions won't cause
tombstones *not* to be removed; it's just not required *in order* for
them to be removed.
