Something that amounts to full repair once every gc_grace_seconds, unless
you never do anything that results in a tombstone. In that (very rare)
case, one should probably still occasionally (2x a year?) run repair to
cover bitrot and similar (very rare) cases.

"Something that amounts to full repair" is either a full repair or an
incremental repair that covers 100% of the new data since gc_grace_seconds.
