Subject Re: LCS and counters

At least for our use case (reading slices from varyingly sized rows from 10-100k composite
columns with counters and hundreds of writes/second) LCS has a nice ~75% lower read latency
than Size Tiered. And compactions don't stop the world anymore.  Repairs do easily trigger
a few hundred compactions though, but it's not that bad.

LCS is optimized for reads and that writing a counter always require a read ?
