> This snapshot will likely be the cheapest snapshot taking method -- it rolls or drops
a marker in the hlog when a snapshot request is made.  This approach can be seen as an improvement
upon copytable/export with similar consistency guarantees.  Specifically, there will be "ragged
edges", and happens-before relation on clients may not be consistent from a client's point
of view but it will be useable for many backup for disaster recovery use cases.
> For example: 
> If client 1 writes row a to region A and then row b to region B, a client happens-before
enforcing snapshot would only be allowed to have neither a nor b, only a, or both a and b.
 Having only b should not be possible.  This outcome would be possible with the log-roll snapshot.
