Anyone want to work on this in the next week or so?  If not, let's punt to 0.92

> There is a lot of general confusion over the semantics of the cell timestamp. In particular,
a couple questions that often come up:
> - If multiple writes to a cell have the same timestamp, are all versions maintained or
just the last?
> - Is it OK to write cells in a non-increasing timestamp order?
> Let's discuss, figure out what semantics make sense, and then move towards (a) documentation,
(b) unit tests that prove we have those semantics.
