> The current implementation of the TimeoutMonitor acts like a race condition generator,
mostly making things worse rather than better. It does it's own thing for a while without
caring for what's happening in the rest of the master.
> The first thing that needs to happen is that the regions should not be processed in one
big batch, because that sometimes can take minutes to process (meanwhile a region that timed
out opening might have opened, then what happens is it will be reassigned by the TimeoutMonitor
generating the never ending PENDING_OPEN situation).
> Those operations should also be done more atomically, although I'm not sure how to do
it in a scalable way in this case.
