Subject [MAVIBOT] naming the various BTree types
Date Fri, 15 Nov 2013 11:08:30 GMT
The name "BTree" is used for both in-memory as well as managed types
this might be slightly confusing unless one looks at the package names.

I suggest we name them as

 1. BTree - the type of tree that maintains data in-memory only
                  (Note that this type of tree also supports an option to
                  flush data to disk with the help of a journal, but may not
                  guarantee data persistence unless explicitly flushed by
the user)

 2. PersistentBTree - the type that persists data to disk
