With this it feels that Lucene is better if you have use-case of frequent
deletes on CF as it marks documents deleted and will be cleaned later.

Though I dint find any doc mentioning how SASI indexes are cleaned after
grace period expired for the tombstone. Will it be remove or not? Ideally
it should be removed.

Also fetching functionality of lucene 'filter' search and SASI is also
sequancial, i.e. no scatter gather.

Does it worth to migrate to SASI if your column family face heavy deletes
