Subject Re: TWCS Parameters - min max trreshold

TWCS will pass through all of the options to STCS, and use them for the
TWCS first window ("now").

It will also use min_threshold to determine whether or not to try to invoke
STCS in the current ("now") bucket, and max_threshold to determine how many
sstables it will combine per pass in older buckets
